Urmia lake is the world’s second largest brine lake which is located in north western Iran and in the region of Azerbaijan and its divided between east Azerbaijan and west Azerbaijan. In 2002, drought began to threaten the Urmia lake and in 2014, the dryness of the lake has been announced to be more than 75%. The reason this drought is not revengeful character of nature but only the nature of human irresponsibility.
