Science in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

In this section you can explore and learn about the variety of habitats and wildlife to be found in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

The landscape within the National Park is a colourful patchwork of habitats ranging from coastal, heathland, woodland, and marshland to name but a few. Each habitat is home to many species of birds, animals, plants and invertebrates. Some rarer species find the conditions in Pembrokeshire ideal for their survival, and the National Park is a stronghold for the chough, several species of bat, and many marine birds and mammals including dolphins and sharks.
