Pembrokeshire Biodiversity Partnership

Biodiversity is all living plants and animals (including human-kind), their genetic variation and the ecosystems on which they (and we) depend. It is everywhere: in gardens, fields, hedgerows, mountains, cliffs and in the sea. Biodiversity is a key element of the natural systems that sustain us through ecosystem services such as pollination of crops, flood alleviation, pest control and water purification. Biodiversity is also an aspect of quality of life, giving us pleasure, interest and understanding of our environment.

At a local level, biodiversity is a particularly important component of local distinctiveness. Pembrokeshire is justly famous for its magnificent coast, thronged with birds and in the spring, carpeted with wild flowers, quiet estuaries, steep wooded valleys and wide sweeps of heathland in the Preseli Hills. The sea and sea bed around the Pembrokeshire coast is rich in species, some of which are of considerable economic importance.

Several organizations work together in Pembrokeshire to maintain and improve local biodiversity. Together, they form the Pembrokeshire Biodiversity Partnership.
