THE PEMBROKESHIRE Coast National Park Authority’s newest recruit to the Ranger Team will be a familiar face to many, having already spent two summers working with the Authority as a Seasonal Ranger.
Megan Pratt, who was born and raised in Carmarthenshire, will be filling the post of North West Area Ranger, following the recent retirement of National Park stalwart, Ian Meopham.
Having spent most of her summer holidays on the St Davids peninsula, Megan has always dreamed of working and living in the area. Coming from a humanities-based background, she looks forward to combining a life-long love of nature with interpreting the area’s natural and human history for others.
Megan said: “Pembrokeshire is special to people in so many different ways and we each have our own places that embody that special quality. The wild, rugged, windswept coastline of the North West is what encapsulates the magic of the National Park for me, but also the birds eye view that one gets out to sea and over the Park when looking from the top of Carn Llidi or Garn Fawr.
“I’m particularly excited about the prospect of working with all the local communities in my area, especially the local schools. I’d like to focus on doing more for local communities so that those who live and work in Pembrokeshire can experience the wonder of it all year round.”
The North West Area of the National Park stretches from the headland north-west of Fishguard to Nolton Haven, incorporating Strumble Head, the popular destinations of Porthgain and Abereiddi, the St Davids peninsula and the vast expanse of Newgale Sands.
