Wild Ark – article recap

Modern Day Tarzans & Janes

We live in a world where nature is in constant threat of destruction and eventual extinction. Some choose to watch it and report on it and some actually choose to roll up their sleeves and try to do something about it. One such group of people are the folks who run Wild Ark. Wild Ark is an organization founded to help preserve endangered habitats. They do this by finding greenbelts, especially those that still have a significant amount of wildlife, and take necessary action to protect it. The group also provides opportunities for researchers to get a close look at it and do the necessary research.

Starting with the founders of Wild Ark, Mark, and Sophie Hutchinson, everyone who is part of the team has one thing in common despite their diverse backgrounds. They all have a passion for nature, outdoor life and have dedicated their life towards this field. In fact, Mark Hutchinson puts it best when he explains why he started the organization when he says he wants to leave behind a better natural habitat, compared to what he found, for his children. A native of Sydney, Australia, he holds multiple degrees and he spends most of the time doing outdoor activities such as trekking and surfing.

Wild Ark is unique compared to many other similar organizations in that they offer field trips and excursions into the wild. They are conducted in a responsible way so as to not disturb or harm wildlife habitat. It could be called “Responsible Ecotourism” where participants get a close look at nature, learn and contribute towards the cause. Wild Ark has carefully picked some of the most popular destinations for participants who want to get close to nature, without damaging anything. Most of the popular destinations are in Africa, in countries such as Botswana and South Africa.
