Announcing our first Youth Ambassador: meet Joss Naylor, a young advocate for nature

At only seventeen years old, Joss Naylor has impressed all of us at Nature’s SAFE with his enthusiasm and steadfast commitment to protecting nature. Growing up on a working farm that is home to significant populations of UK red-listed birds such as the curlew and lapwing, Joss has developed a lifelong interest in the intricate relationship between agriculture and biodiversity. He is particularly focused on enhancing biodiversity through innovative policies and technology alongside sustainable farming practices.

Living with Cerebral Palsy has driven him to explore beyond practical conservation efforts, aiming to influence economic and legal policies for environmental sustainability. His current goal is to study Land Economy at university, equipping himself with the knowledge and skills to make a meaningful impact in the conservation sector.

Joss’s unwavering dedication to Nature’s SAFE has been evident through his impressive fundraising and advocacy efforts. Last Christmas, he raised £1,000 by selling our unique Christmas cards commissioned by artist Emma Wood. He also represented our charity at a local Model United Nations competition, attracting an audience of 250 attendees, and was part of our team that raised over £9,000 during the Stallion AI Open Day in April.

In his own words, Joss shared his excitement about becoming our Youth Ambassador:

“Nature’s SAFE fosters a lot of things for me; creativity in looking for sustainable solutions and a strong team cohesion behind clear goals being chief among them. I am looking forward to continuing to learn from those much wiser and more experienced than me through my work with Nature’s SAFE, to a point where I may become as influential as the trustees and team in the ever-changing landscape of conservation, and help the learning of others in my position. Nature’s SAFE has ultimately taught me the value of playing a role in a cause which I truly believe in and giving it my all; I couldn’t be prouder to support the charity and become their first ever Youth Ambassador!”

Joss’s commitment and passion are truly inspirational, and we are excited to see the positive impact he will undoubtedly make as our Youth Ambassador. Join us in welcoming Joss Naylor to the Nature’s SAFE family, and stay tuned for more updates on his journey and contributions to our conservation efforts.
