On the 20th November 2013 the Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum (PCF) will host the immensely popular ‘Pembrokeshire Wildlife Sightings Event’ at the Merlin Theatre, Haverfordwest. The event inspires local naturalists and photographers to share stories and images celebrating the diverse and special wildlife of Pembrokeshire.
The event supports the work of the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter www.pembrokeshireoutdoors.org.uk and Marine Code groups www.pembrokeshiremarinecode.org.uk whose aim is to raise awareness of what we can all do to ensure that its wildlife is cherished and protected for future generations. The groups have developed codes of conduct and best practice for adventurous activities and organize regular environmental training events to raise awareness of the flora, fauna, and natural heritage of Pembrokeshire. Six local speakers will share stories and images of their wildlife sightings in Pembrokeshire from the past year. This year, Butterfly expert David Redhead will be enlightening the audience about The Hairstreak of Pembrokeshire. Cliff Benson of the SeaTrust will be telling us of their Whale and Dolphin sightings. Sue Burton & Geoff Liles will be sharing stories and images of their encounters when out ‘Spotting Otters’.
