Information on Pembrokeshire Reserves

Information about the individual reserves in Pembrokeshire; there is also our latest news page on our Pembrokeshire Reserves.

We currently manage the mainland reserves with one member of staff and a group of enthusiastic volunteers.

The islands of Skomer and Skokholm have their own staff and volunteer teams.

Without volunteers and people becoming members of the Trust we would be unable to do this vital work in Pembrokeshire.

If you are thinking of taking your dog along with you to a nature reserve, please read and conform to our guidelines for dog walking on nature reserves. This will help us to keep the nature reserves a safe place for wildlife and people.
