Among Janet and David's travels was a visit to Iran's Lake Oroumieh. Once one of the world's largest salt lakes (at 37.75 degrees North) has been rapidly declining due to watershed diversions and agricultural water use. In late February 2014, experts gathered in northwestern Iran to develop plans for saving the lake, which now holds just 20 percent of the water it contained only a decade ago. The nation's new president, Hassad Arani, made this effort an urgent priority.
