   The William Holden Wildlife Foundation was founded in 1982 by actress Stefanie Powers in memory of the late William Holden, to continue his work as a conservationist and co-founder of the Mt. Kenya Game Ranch. The estate is located on the equator at 7000 feet above sea level on the slopes of Mt. Kenya. It was founded to carry on his important efforts and meet the  increasing demand for alternatives to animal extinction.

   Captive breeding is an important tool for species conservation. This highly focused and labor intensive endeavor is accomplished by a system of world wide organizations participating in cooperation with one another. The International Species Inventory System keeps genealogical information on individual animals of 2,500 species of mammals and birds that are located in Europe and North American zoos; making it possible to arrange matings by computer, and minimizing problems caused by inbreeding.

   Throughout his life, William Holden continued his wholehearted support of the game ranch, and often referred to this as the greatest work of his life over and above his motion pictures. Considering he won an Oscar for Best Actor for his performance in Stalag 17, that’s saying something. Virtually 100% of tax-deductible donations goes directly to the never-ending work of WHWF.

   While you are there, the William Holden Wildlife Foundation Education Center offers an opportunity to experience the outdoors in a communication with nature often unavailable in their own environment.
