Urmia Lake دریاچه ارومیه

دریاچه ارومیه در شمال غربی ایران و در منطقه آذربایجان واقع شده‌است. این دریاچه طبق آخرین تقسیمات کشوری، بین دو استان آذربایجان شرقی و آذربایجان غربی تقسیم شده‌است. دریاچه ارومیه، بزرگ‌ترین دریاچه داخلی ایران و دومین دریاچه آب‌شور دنیا است. آب این دریاچه بسیار شور بوده و عمدتاً از رودخانه‌های زرینه‌رود، سیمینه‌رود، گدار، باراندوز، شهرچای، نازلو و زولا تغذیه می‌شود.

The Orumieh Lake, which lies in the northwestern Iran, is home to some 212 species of birds, 41 reptiles, 7 amphibians, and 27 species of mammals, including the Iranian yellow deer. Experts have warned that the construction of a 1.5 kilometer bridge over the lake, finished a few months ago, together with a series of ecological factors, will eventually lead to the drying up of Orumia, turning it into a salt marsh which will directly affect the climate of the region. The construction of a dam on part of the lake and the recent drought has significantly decreased the annual amount of water Orumia receives.This in turn has increased the salinity of Orumia's water, causing the lake to lose its significance as home to thousands of migratory birds, such as flamingos.
