Wales: Geography and Maps
Bordered by England, the geography of Wales is varied. There are flat coastal plains, valleys, farms and ranges of hills and mountains. The largest mountains are in the north of the country, with Snowdon at 1,085 m (3559.71 ft) being the highest.
There are three national parks in Wales that protect approximately 20% of the country. One of the most well known of the parks is Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Established in 1952, it is the only UK park to be designated completely because of its coast. The park is home to many rare birds and its waters host the likes of Atlantic grey seals, dolphins and porpoises. Within this one protected area are seven special areas of conservation, a marine nature reserve, six national nature reserves and seventy-five sites of specific scientific interest.
