Our Nature Conservation Area

Our Nature Conservation Area

A large section of the Terminal is allocated as a Nature Conservation Area, forming part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

We work closely with the Pembrokeshire Coast National Authority (PCNPA) to preserve the undisturbed nature of this protected piece of land. Human access is controlled to encourage priority species to inhabit and thrive.

The Nature Conservation Area is characterised by a complex mosaic of semi-natural habitats, ranging from wet and dry scrub to grassland and permanent pools.  The Nature Conservation Area supports an extending range of species of dragon and damselflies, as well as a total of around thirty-seven species of birds, including birds of prey such as peregrine falcons, kestrels and barn owl.

Protected bumble bee species have been found  in the Nature Conservation Area, along with an abundance of butterflies.
