Matsalu National Park 

With its total area of nearly 500 sq km, Matsalu National Park is included in the Ramsar List of Wetlands of International Importance. In Matsalu, man and nature live side by side, complementing and safeguarding each other. There is a reason why the most important areas in Matsalu are called seminatural—with moderate human intervention, the open floodplains, coastal pastures and wooded meadows are a home to numerous animal, bird and plant species.
