The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales manages some of the region’s most precious wild places, boasting magnificent coastline, islands, rugged mountains, ancient woodland, the heritage-rich ex-coalmining valleys and the richest agricultural land. In fact, Skomer Island, Pembrokeshire has been awarded the Best Nature Reserve in the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards
Skomer is an internationally important wildlife and heritage site located less than a mile off the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast. Well known for its Puffins, yet there is so much more to the bird paradise including Manx Shearwaters, Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises, Atlantic Grey Seal, Razorbills, Gannets, Fulmars and the unique Skomer Vole. The island is surrounded by some of the richest waters for wildlife off the British Isles from delightfully coloured sea slugs to magnificent cetaceans. There’s a long list of plants and animals that call this area home.
What can I see?
Viewers can watch Seals during the morning as they haul out on Skomer’s North Haven beach, Puffins, Razorbills, Guillemots, Rabbits on the cliff top during the afternoon and Manx Shearwaters at night.
