Land and Resources
Estonia is a low-lying plain with numerous streams and lakes.
The average elevation is about 50 m (about 165 ft), with the highest point
in the republic reaching only 318 m (about 1043 ft). Wetlands cover more
than 20 percent of the country's territory. Lakes and reservoirs cover an
additional 5 percent, with the two largest lakes, Lake Peipus on the eastern
border and VÃµrts-JÃ¤rv in the south central part of the country, accounting
for nearly four-fifths of the total lake surface area.
The climate is
moderated by marine influences, although more continental conditions exist
in inland portions of the republic. Precipitation is moderate, with mean
annual rainfall ranging from 500 to 700 mm (19.5 to 27.3 in). Elongated
hills arrayed from north to south are evidence of former glaciation, as are
the glacial boulders found in the south and southeast. The mainland has a
coastline about 1160 km (about 720 mi) long. About one-fourth of the land is
forested, mainly with pine, birch, aspen, and fir. Elk, deer, and wild boar
are common wildlife. Several species have been protected by legislation
because of their small numbers, including the beaver, red deer, and willow
