About Us

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is a special place and needs careful management to look after it for everyone to enjoy, now and in the future. At the National Park Authority we’re charged with keeping the Park special.

This section aims to explain the relationship between the physical environment of the The Park and The Authority’s role in managing and conserving it. You can find out more about all the different areas of the Authority's work by visiting the Park Authority Services page. Alternatively, you can visit our Facts and Figures page to get an idea of what makes the Pembrokeshire Coast special.

The Park is a unique environment made up of many things - wildlife, habitats, farming, history, tourism, business and local communities. Our job as an Authority is to work to achieve a happy balance for all those with an interest in the Park.

You can also learn more about the Authority's Members. They’re the representatives of Pembrokeshire County Council and Welsh Government Members who oversee the Authority’s work.

It’s worth remembering that National Parks are not in public ownership. Most of the land is privately owned. In fact in the Authority owns just under 1% of the area of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

There are lots of ways you can get involved. Keep an eye on the Jobs section for details of any vacancies or learn more about how you can volunteer.

Don’t forget we’re also on Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, so if you've got any photographs, videos or anything you want to share with us please feel free to get in touch via your favourite social media channel.
