Pratka Family
It was Mark’s fourth time and it was extra special this time since he always dreamt of bringing his sons to Africa, and this time, he got to have his grandkids along for the adventure too. “When you come to Avula, you’re surrounded by people that love what they do. They love the environment, nature, the animals and working really hard to keep that alive.” – Mark Pratka Mark hunted his whole life and passed on the tradition of hunting for food to his sons. To them, it’s all about the comradery, not the trophies. They also spoke to us about the link between hunting and conservation. “Without hunters, you don’t have a demand for these animals. Hunters are creating a demand that is providing a platform for these animals to thrive”. – Clay Pratka We’d like to thank Mark, and his sons, for supporting our approach to hunting conservation, and embracing the spirit of Avula to Adventure True.
