Frank Pope is a British marine archaeologist, journalist and conservationist who is available for hire as a motivational speaker through Champions.
For four years from 2008 he was the world’s only Ocean Correspondent, working for The Times and covering everything from offshore energy to environment, piracy to science, shipwrecks and exploration.
Before working for The Times he worked in marine archaeology, examining & excavating shipwrecks around the world. One project – the excavation of an Asian junk sunk in deep water off Vietnam – was the subject of his first book, Dragon Sea.
Frank’s second book was entitled 72 Hours, the story of the Royal Navy submarine rescue team and their dramatic last mission to save the crew of a trapped Russian submersible.
He has also filmed a two of ocean-related series for the BBC, a two-part series on the forgotten shipwrecks of the river Thames and a documentary entitled Britain’s Secret Seas.
Frank is a regular speaker at schools and other events on this subject of marine conservation, and is also an Ambassador for the Blue Marine Foundation.
In 2012 Frank left Britain for Kenya where he now works as a conservationist, fundraiser and environment speaker for Save the Elephants.
In his capacity as an environment speaker for the organization Frank has acted as a lobbyist and activist, raising public awareness of the threats to African elephants by climate change and poaching.
Frank often returns to the UK to work as an inspirational keynote speaker at wildlife and charity events, but he continues to be passionate about archaeology and can also be hired as a historical and archaeological presenter for corporate and educational events.
