Regional Representatives

We have regional reps across the UK. Find yours and join your local group, and discover like-minded people and events in your area!


From towering mountains to vast lochs, discover all that Scotland has to offer. The land of eagles, roaring stags, ptarmigans and more...

North-East England

Whether it's the golden sands of Tynemouth beach, the dense forest of Kielder or the undulating landscape that follows the infamous Hadrian's wall, the north-east has tonnes of wildlife. Red kites wheel in the skies, seals cluster on the shores, owls and bats make use of the agricultural pastures. If you're lucky enough to have this as your local patch, get involved with its conservation!


Are you lucky enough to live next to the Breacon Beacons, or do you roam along the Pembrokeshire coastline? Do you search for red squirrels in Anglesey, or seek dolphin sightings in Cardigan Bay? Then get involved with the conservation of Welsh wildlife!

Could you be an AFON regional rep?

Are you passionate about wildlife and conservation on your local patch? Could you enthuse others to get involved? We want you!

As the Youth Nature Network for the UK, we want to encourage and facilitate connections between our members. Although we run a number of events throughout the year, due to venue locations, timings and other commitments, these events don’t always cater to everybody. By introducing regional reps, we hope that our members may be able to engage with each other and have the chance to meet like-minded individuals who are based nearby, organising events locally, sharing opportunities and learning from one another.

We are looking for people aged between 18-30, who are excited about connecting young naturalists in their area to share their skills and support, as well as exploring your natural spaces. Regional reps will be a flexible role, held on an informal basis – at the very least, a rep should be prepared to engage with other members via social media and arrange informal meet-ups, but if they wish they may also help facilitate larger-scale events, or represent AFON at local events. However much a rep wants to be involved, they will be supported by the wider AFON team.
