Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) are some of the most cherished landscapes of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland.  Wales has five AONBs that contain over 24,000 hectares of some of our most precious wildlife sites, attracting over 3 million visitors a year and providing a home for 57,000 people.  From the heather uplands of the Clwydian Range, through the coastal communities of Llŷn, Anglesey, and Gower, to the woods and rivers of the Wye Valley; all are different; all are special.


The National Association for Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (NAAONB) is the umbrella charity for the AONBs in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland and works to develop a network of ambitious AONB partnerships with a strong collective voice, working collaboratively to deliver shared objectives.  We have the principles of sustainable development at our core, and this is reflected in everything we do.
