Call for Action to Save Bisheh-Dalan Wetland

Call for Action to Save  Bisheh-Dalan Wetland Call for Action to Save  Bisheh-Dalan Wetland

Unless urgent action is taken by the government, Bisheh-Dalan wetland in Lorestan Province will soon die out, a report by Mehr News Agency has warned. 
"Bisheh-Dalan is on its last breaths and if no immediate rescue effort is made, it will be wiped off the face of the earth," the report said. Located in the Silakhor Plain, 15 kilometers from the western city of Borujerd, the wetland spans an area of 913 hectares.
It is home to an array of wildlife, from migratory birds to various species of reptiles, amphibians and mammals.
But this national asset has been subject to massive man-made damage and the government has done little to prevent it.
