An Iranian woman watches the Lake of Urmia in the northwest of Iran. Salt lake Urmia is a UNESCO biosphere reserve. However, the lake has lost 88% of its area since three decades ago.Iran's Lake Urmia was once the second-largest saltwater lake in the world, covering more than 2,000 square miles at its deepest in the 1990s.
