Sustainability in the National Park

In this section you can find out how the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority tackles the issues of sustainability, climate change and sea level rise.

When the National Park was designated in 1952, thoughts of climate change, sea level rise and issues surrounding dwindling resources were very far from the minds of most of the population. However, these issues have grown in magnitude on a global and local level.

The National Park Authority recognises that it is everyone’s collective responsibility to reverse the negative effects of human consumption. So the Authority is working hard to address these concerns on a local level to ensure that the beautiful, but vulnerable, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is a sustainable National Park that will be enjoyed for many years to come by future generations.

Whether you’re a teacher, student, or just simply curious, there should be something here for you, including:

  • An exploration and explanation of the issues surrounding climate change and sea level rise
  • An exploration of how the National Park Authority is working to manage resources and save energy.
