While many of us live in the comforts of our homes far away from anything that remotely resembles the wilderness, a few chosen people feel the need to be connected to the wild. One such person that heads nature’s call is Australian native, conservationist and founder of Wild Ark Mark Hutchinson. Spending most of his young adult life Jackarooing around Australia at the age of 19 Mark traveled the entire length of Africa by car. Learn more: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/415949715569059008/
Wanting to turn his passion for the outdoors into his dream job Mark started a company that would host people going on adventures to the furthest reaches. With his life partner by his side, Sophie, Mark continued to learn the ins and outs of running a small business. Still wanting more Mark traveled to France where he would study an MBA to help him expand his business. The company did continue to grow but unfortunately took a turn for the worse and Mark ended up leaving as a result. Learn more: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/415949715569059008/
After realizing that a corporate business may not be the best way to help educate and conserve the wilderness that Mark loved so dearly he started Wild Ark a company that focuses on purchasing as much high value biodiversity land as they are able to and protect the ecosystems on that land.
Mark feels that everyone should be involved in the wilderness in one way or another. Even the smallest deed does not go unnoticed, plant a tree, build a birdhouse, take a walk in the bush or go for a swim. This attraction to nature has been in our DNA since the birth of man and should not be let to slip away. Learn more: http://wildark.com/blog/mark-hutchinson-for-the-wild/
