Recap of For The Wild – An Interview with WildArk Founder Mark Hutchinson

A scientific study published this past week strongly warns that we are currently experiencing our planet’s sixth mass extinction event. The Center for Biological Diversity’s website notes “as many as 30 to 50 percent of all species possibly heading toward extinction by mid-century.”[1] The scientific study titled Biological annihilation via the ongoing sixth mass extinction signaled by vertebrate population losses and declines states that the number one culprit is “human overpopulation and continued population growth, and overconsumption, especially by the rich.”[2] WildArk founder Mark “Hutch” Hutchinson hopes to change these potential statistics by preserving, and reconnecting us with, our natural world through conservation and eco-tourism.

In a recent interview posted on WildArk’s blog titled For The Wild – An Interview with WildArk Founder Mark Hutchinson [3], Hutchinson discusses his life growing up in the wilds of Australia and spending a year working as a jackaroo in the Northern Territory. He then took an amazing road trip across Africa at age 19 before attending University in Sydney to obtain a Bachelor degree in Economics. He started his first adventure company, UNTAMED, at 22 with the sole purpose of taking travelers to “mother nature’s furthest outposts.” He grew UNTAMED into the eco-tourism company, Avana, which he sold only to see its demise as a publicly traded company.

 

Now, along with his wife, Sophie, and four children, he has created a new business endeavor, WildArk, with one goal – preserving our planet’s precious, natural landscapes and diverse wildlife, while rewilding all of us to the same. “The ultimate goal for Wild Ark is to buy, protect and restore as much high value biodiversity land as possible and build sustainable business on that land for the protection and continuation of those ecosystems.”

 

From Hutchinson’s strong connections with others that share the same love for wildlife, eco-tourism and conservation to his necessity for daily connection to the bush, whether on the northern beaches of Sydney or the African savannah while hosting an eco-tour or eco-training group, we should all take a page from his playbook and start and continue taking part in the conservation of our natural world.
