WILDLIFE IN PEMBROKESHIRE
As the UK’s only coastal National Park Pembrokeshire is uniquely suited as a habitat for a wide variety of wildlife.
In crystal clear blue waters you can find countless forms of marine life from tiny sea urchins all the way up to the enormous basking sharks and playful dolphins. On the numerous islands such as Skomer, Skokholm, Caldey, Ramsey and Grassholm throngs of sea birds, like the Gannets, Cormorants, Puffins and Manx Shearwaters make their home, there is the unique Skomer vole; and many visiting migrating birds.
Pembrokeshire has a great deal to offer the wildlife enthusiast. Coastal walks, Preseli Hills and Milford Haven estuary walks. There are regular boat trips from Martins Haven near Marloes to visit Skomer Island bird sanctuary and marine reserve, and thrill packed boat rides around Ramsey leaving from St. Justinians near St. David’s, when it is possible to catch sight of leaping Common and Harbour porpoise and Atlantic grey seals basking on the rocks.
Pembrokeshire shows off the United Kingdom’s bio-diversity at its best.
