Eco-tourism has become a pretty popular phenomenon around the world. Tourists from different countries and cultures are inclined to visit destinations that offer nature-based experiences. Eco-tours offer travelers the most adrenalin-filled thrills in the world. They are fun, relaxing, and give you a horde of stories to talk about later. Eco-tours also offer clients an opportunity to benefit the locals and the places they visit by protecting their cultural heritage and supporting conservation. Eco-tourists fall into two broad categories:
- Those that are motivated by enjoying nature together with friends and family
- Tourists who enjoy eco-tourism for the purpose of narrating their experiences
Understanding both groups helps tourism companies to create experiences that match their tastes and preferences. WildArk is one such company that is dedicated to preserving eco-destinations and various parts of recognized green belts around the world. So far the company has acquired one property- Pridelands with the aim of transforming it into an eco-destination. Learn more: https://au.pinterest.com/wild_ark/
It is a 4500-acre (former) hunting farm in South Africa that was acquired to develop an ecologically sound habitat. Mark Hutchinson, WildArk’s founder aims to reinstate the estate to a migrational and residential habitat for elephants, lions, buffalo, and the rhino. In partnership with EcoTraining, WildArk plans to develop eco-tourism and education opportunities for locals to connect with nature and learn how to protect wild places.
Founded by Mark and Sophie Hutchinson, WildArk was formed with the primary goal of buying, protecting and reinstating the biodiversity of lands while creating sustainable trades for the protection and continuation of the ecosystems. Worried about the perils facing wildlife and places, Mark and Sophie together with a team of conservationists decided to look for ways to make a difference actively. The company in partnership with close colleagues at EcoTraining recently acquired its first property-Pricelands to with the aim of realizing their conservancy goals. Additionally, the partners (EcoTraining and Pricelands) plan to put up an EcoTraing camp on the property to create learning opportunities for local school children. Through its vast experience in wildlife, conservation partnerships, and travel offerings, WildArk intend to allow people to become educated and engaged in protecting wildlife and their habitats.

Samuel Strauch is at the forefront of the real estate investment boom that has been going on in Miami, FL for the better part of the past decade.
Strauch has a degree in business after studying from several high profile universities including Hofstra and Harvard and he has been putting that education to good use over the years. Strauch’s careful and controlled ascent up the industry says as much about his company, Metrik Holdings, as it does about the talented entrepreneur himself. To get to where Strauch has gotten in his career it could be worth diving into advice that the real estate mogul has put together.
To start things off, Samuel Strauch is firmly in the camp that your networking skills are your greatest assets. Without quality networking you’ll never be able to make the connections and form the relationships necessary in order to become successful in the business. Strauch says, “The key to my business is always meeting new people and strengthening relationships (…)” Strauch goes on to really emphasize the point that new relationships can lead to new business opportunities, ideas, and clients. However, Strauch still knows that you have to take care of yourself above all. Strauch spends as much of his free time as possible holed up and meditating so that he can keep his focus on what is important.

Metrik Real Estate has always been considered pretty progressive in their approach to the real estate market. They started out as a local realty company servicing the needs of the Miami area before going more global with networking in Latin America, as well. Strauch says, “Being forward thinking and creative is part of our DNA and it clearly sets us apart as leaders in our industry.” Strauch goes on to explain that his company is focused on being analytical and really sinking their teeth into every idea. If the idea passes the analysis then they go forward and put every ounce of their energy into developing it.
Perhaps what impresses us most about Strauch isn’t what he has accomplished, but what he wouldn’t change. Strauch confidently says that he wouldn’t change a thing if he had the opportunity. Perhaps it is his deep meditation but his answer is simple, “Life is a lesson and whatever path we take is an essential part of our growth.”
