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 Park Authority we’re charged with keeping the Park 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.

It’s worth remembering that National Parks are not in public ownership. Most of the land is privately owned. In fact in our case, without the foreshore lease, we own just 5.37 sq km of land - just under 1% of the area of the National Park.

So, the Authority is made up of many different parts:

And the Park is very special and very beautiful. And we want to keep it that way for future generations, which is why we’re here.

There are lots of ways you can get involved. Keep an eye on the Jobs section and for ways to volunteer. You can also meet your Members. They’re the representatives of Pembrokeshire County Council and Welsh Government Members who oversee the Authority’s work.

Don’t forget we’re also on Facebook, Youtube, Flickr and Twitter! Sound like a different language? Then click on the links and find out more. Join up, become a fan, download some pictures or videos of the National Park. Just get involved!
