Our Wildlife

Explore the Pembrokeshire Coast with us and observe the amazing wildlife.

Pembrokeshire is home to a myriad of wildlife, from a variety of both resident and migrating nesting sea birds, to grey seals, porpoises, dolphins, and even whales! 

The Atlantic Grey Seals are resident to the Pembrokeshire islands and coastline, in particular Ramsey Island which has one of the biggest colonies in Southern Britain. Their numbers peak in later summer during their breeding season, where we can see over one thousand seals with their pups on Ramsey alone!

We also have both resident and visiting migrating sea birds that nest on the Pembrokeshire Islands for the breeding season. Ramsey Island RSPB Nature Reserve is home to Razorbills and Guillemots, to rare birds such as the Chough and Peregrine Falcon, whereas Skomer is home to over 42,000 Puffins!

Pembrokeshire has diverse wildlife, our rich in nutrients oceans mean we get amazing sightings of Cetaceans from Porpoises to Common dolphins, to Bottlenose and Risso’s dolphins, and even Minke and Fin whales! We also have less regular sightings of sometimes more exotic wildlife such as Leatherback Turtles and Sunfish, and even Basking sharks, Blue sharks, and Mako sharks.

“We are so lucky in having such a myriad of wildlife right here, and it has been a privilege to be raised in an area with such biodiversity.”
