Skomer is a magical place to visit, a haven for wildlife it is most well known for its puffins, yet there is so much more to the bird paradise.
Off the coast of Pembrokeshire this island, with its sister island Skokholm, is surrounded by some of the richest waters for wildlife off the British Isles. The seas are full of fantastic wildlife, from delightfully coloured sea slugs to magnificent cetaceans. The island itself attracts a huge array of wildlife which shelters in its bays and inlets.
To gain an insight into the world and work of Skomer’s wardens, please read their blog on the trials and tribulations of being an island warden. You can also download some Frequently Asked Questions about Skomer (440 kb)
