The Last Breath of Bakhtegan
Bakhtegan Wetland is the second largest fading watershed After Urmia Lake. It has been a host for the “ChaharRahi” nomads for 800 years in this region. Similar to all the watersheds of Iran, Bakhtegan wetland has been a victim to the drought, with no hopes for its survival. Sooner or later, Bakhtegan ecosystem, will be a Badland. Badland in a sense that probably only a few of its local and non-local species will have the ability to cope with the new characteristics of the new land, and less will have the ability to stand.
