Explore the amazing wildlife that makes its home on the Pembrokeshire Coast - not forgetting the exciting array of seasonal wildlife which also loves to visit Pembrokeshire year after year.
The Pembrokeshire Coast is a gem among the landscapes of Britain. Much of it is unspoiled and untouched by the intensities of modern living and farming, so it provides an ideal home to many native species that have disappeared from other parts of the UK.

Rare birds such as choughs, skylarks and the stonechat choose the coastal heathland to make their home. Bats and many bird species hunt along the lines of twisting hedgerows, rich with wild flowers, whilst Atlantic grey seals give birth on our shores and dolphins and porpoises play in the waves.
As if these local characters aren’t enough, we are lucky to attract a vast array of extraordinary creatures who return every year to Pembrokeshire’s shores. These include basking sharks, orcas, blue sharks, sunfish, various jellyfish, turtles and Risso's dolphins. You are very lucky indeed if you catch a glimpse!
