Below is an old TV program from the Mutual of Omaha’s “Wild Kingdom” series featuring a program entitled: The Flamingos Return to Lake Rezaieh (Urumieh). The program was hosted by the late Dr. Marlin Perkins (Director Emeritus of St. Louis Zoo) and Dr. Philip Kahl.

The program discusses Lake Urumieh, the largest slat-water lake in the world and a UNESCO recognized site. The lake is now endangered due to mismanagement by government authorities. In fact the lake is now in danger of dying and drying up completely, thanks to mismanagement by the governing establishment.
