Kaboudan Island (Quyun Daghi) and Ashk Island are the largest islands of Lake Urmia in West Azerbaijan, which were declared protected areas by the Environmental Protection Organization in 1967 and then became a national park in 1976.

These two islands in northwestern Iran are located in the east of Urmia and south of the lake.

A variety of mammals and birds live on the islands, but the predominant species are Armenian rams and yellow deer.

The Persian yellow deer is a rare and endangered species that lives on Ashk Island.
