• There are three natural wetlands in Tehran Province namely Bandalikhan, Qanbarabad and Eshqabad.

    While the capital is struggling with smoggy days, environmental experts and authorities have begun warning about the impending arrival of another type of pollution: dust storms. The residents of Tehran are used to frequent days of unhealthy air chiefly caused by the large number of vehicles and motorbikes, but the desiccation of nearby wetlands has sounded the alarm over the appearance of new types of particle pollution.
