Overview
More
The Emajoe-Suursoo marshlands have been under nature conservation since 1981. The eastern part of Tartu County from Kallaste to Mehikoorma is in Peipus Basin. Emajoe-Suursoo marshlands cover the estuarine area of the Emajogi River and consist of Jommsoo, Suursoo, Varnja and Pedaspaa Swamps and Meerapalu Fen. The marshlands cover approximately 25,000 ha, 7,000 ha of this can get flooded. They are the fifth largest marshlands in Estonia and the biggest delta marshlands in the country. The diversity of wet habitats is the most valuable feature of Emajoe-Suursoo.
