This satellite image captured of southern Iran shows what an arid and inhospitable area most of this region is. Along the coast wetlands are also found, forming at the deltas of the Rud-e-Gaz and Rud-e-Hara rivers. This extensive complex of tidal mudflats, creeks, saltmarshes, mangroves, sandbanks and offshore islands is an important site for wintering waterbirds.
