Andrew Cooper is one of Britain’s most distinguished and influential television producers. As a writer, broadcaster and international award winning wildlife film-maker he is a familiar face on BBC television and responsible for some of the most popular Natural World wildlife documentaries. He is also the author of nine books on natural history.
A biologist and anthropologist by training, his career as a television producer with the BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol consumes most of his time but not all. He has wide business experience, is a popular speaker and also owns one of the most successful websites of its kind in the country. As a landowner he tries to practise what he preaches in the woodlands and meadows of his own farm close to the Teign estuary.
He is an experienced board member of several charities, public and private organisations, including being chair of the Devon Wildlife Trust, Vice-president of the Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust and a Non-Executive Director and Vice-chair of a leading NHS Hospital Foundation Trust. Currently he is a Secretary of State appointee as an Authority Member to Dartmoor National Park.
