Eesti Loodus (‘Estonian Nature’) is an in-depth magazine for people aware of and interested in nature. It particularly addresses the homeland nature, its research and protection. However, Eesti Loodus does not forget events taking place elsewhere in the world. The magazine features news of nature and nature-related science and research as well as the chronicles of Estonian nature conservation.
Eesti Loodus also continues to publish and support Estonian wildlife photography, writes about the expeditions of our scientists, and publishes manuals for nature observers and the letters of readers.
Every issue of the magazine features a cover story – a detailed and thorough narrative of an intriguing topic. The magazine also introduces different protected areas and includes maps of hiking paths. Comprehensive interviews with Estonian scientists give the reader insights into the world of science. The editorial board keeps an eye on newly published books as well.

In the globalizing world, Eesti Loodus has the vital mission of keeping the Estonian-language science alive. Although written in a somewhat popular form, the articles in the magazine help to bring the existent, but also new terms of natural sciences to the people.
