Danny Copeland

Danny is our UK based team member. Danny was the 2015 Our World Underwater Scholarship Society European Rolex Scholar.

In 2014, Daniel gained a first class degree with honours in Zoology at the University of Sheffield. Outside of his studies, he became a member of the university’s sub-aqua club, serving on the club’s committee and helping to organise dive trips around the UK. He was also trained as a drysuit and nitrox diver, and later began teaching fellow students as a BSAC Assistant Diving Instructor.

As the Media Manager for the Manta Trust, Daniel has collaborated with marine NGOs to spearhead online campaigns that garnered public support of protective legislation for sharks and rays, using social media to reach an audience of more than four million people. A keen interest in underwater photography and videography resulted in Daniel placing second in an amateur wildlife film competition ran by a UK natural history TV channel, with a one-minute film on blue sharks.
