A look at Estonian Bogs (raba)

All Estonians are familiar with bogs and the environmental benefits associated with them. Estonia is rich in peatlands, it is the oldest organic landscape that started to emerge some 10,000 years ago, right after the last ice age. Bogs cover 6-7% of Estonia's territory and the government have projects underway to preserve them. This video by Artur Rehi explains many things about bogs and Estonia's fondness for them.
