BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Lakes in Bakersfield are disappearing due to the California mega drought. Bakersfield teamed up with an environmentalist group to help wildlife even though by that time many of the animals already died. Truxtun Lake has disappeared and the Park at River Walk lakes are right behind it. Now not only will the lakes go but the wildlife will die too and that includes the turtles. Bakersfield teamed up with QK Inc. a service firm located in Bakersfield. QK's purpose was to help advise the city on how to save some of the wildlife at Truxtun Lake.
