In the third and final instalment in this brand new series celebrating the people and places of Wales’ three National Parks we travel down to the rugged coast of Pembrokeshire. Previously we have seen the razor-edge mountain heights of Snowdonia in the north, and the sweeping mountains and moors of the Brecon Beacons; now the sea is calling.

These places are not just a playground for tourists and adventurers; they’re also home to more than 80,000 people. Among them are families who have been here for generations and others who arrived just a few months ago. But all of them are proud to call their little piece of Wales ‘home’.

This episode visits the misty isle of Skomer on the Pembrokeshire coast, where the wildlife photographer and freediver Nicki Meharg on an underwater expedition. Some creative puffin headgear allows her to covertly photograph these iconic birds, before exploring the ‘secret’ soothing kelp forests that lie beneath the surface in St Brides Bay.
