The beautiful Carningli Hills are a dominant feature in Pembrokeshire. They of exceptional importance to many species, including rare bog flora such as pale butterwort, bog orchid and marsh clubmoss. The area is important for a mosaic of habitats including fen, acid grassland, marshy grassland, dry heath and wet heath.
As is the case in many other areas of Wales, a reduction in grazing of common land is threatening these habitats. This is causing a decline in the condition of the heathland and this is where Sinead and her herd come in!
This small herd of hardy ponies have been grazing on the Carningli heathland to prevent spread of scrub and bracken. This will help to restore the condition of the heath.
