Hutchinson and His Company – WildArk

Mark Hutchinson founded WildArk, which is a business dedicated to saving the wild and all of the animals that need it to survive. His early childhood was rich with experiences of the wild. He grew up in, Australia, where he was lucky enough to ride horses, fly-fish, round up sheep, and even crawl into wombat holes. His adventurous nature led him to drive the length of Africa when he was just 19 years old. Then, at the age of 22 he developed a successful adventure company, by the name of UNTAMED. The name was changed to Avana and it was turned into a training and ecotourism business that he would later sell, only to eventually fail. In 2015 Hutch decided to quit the corporate world and return to what he loved, places that were wild. He wanted to inspire people to connect with nature and help preserve the ecosystems that have become so fragile. Learn more: https://ideamensch.com/mark-hutchinson/

 

Hutchinson believes people have lost their connection to the wild, but that it is still there to be rediscovered and enjoyed. He believes it could be as simple as planting a tree, bird watching, or being in the ocean that can inspire people to be outdoors more often. WildArks mission is to buy land and allow it to become wild again through rehabilitation. They would also like to provide a wildlife corridor with National Parks. Conservation of the oceans and land across the globe is their over-all concern. In 2016 Hutch earned his Master’s Degree in Conservation, and he hopes he can use it to help him communicate within the world of conservationism. In order to stay connected to nature while raising twin girls, Hutch surfs and swims in the ocean. His girls enjoy adventures in the bush of Sydney, Australia, where they can identify bird calls and observe the wild places.
