    Migratory birds flocking to Karun 

    The first flock of migratory birds including ivory gulls, herons, and cormorant, have flown to the Karun river to winter in southern Iran.   Every year with the onset of cold seasons many migratory birds wing their ways to tropical areas near the Persian Gulf and the wetlands located in southern Iran which supply them with adequate food and warmth.

    Buffalos, children’s playmates 

    Gavmish Abad (literally translated as the land of buffalos) is located on the outskirts of Karun county, southwestern Khuzestan province, where the life of the locals is mingled with the Karun River and buffalos.  Drop of water level and the entry of various pollutants into the river have made the life of buffalos tough as for the locals, but it won’t wipe away laughter off their children’s face.
