It is with great pleasure that we share with you the celebration of the William Holden Wildlife Foundation’s 35th anniversary commemorating the inauguration of the completed Education Center in Nanyuki, Kenya.
The ceremony will occur at the Center on the 13th of April in the presence of the chief honoured guest Her Excellency Margaret Kenyatta, First Lady of the Republic of Kenya, along with an esteemed guest list including the US Ambassador to Kenya.
With Stefanie Powers as its president, the Foundation is determined to foster a better understanding of the crucial role flora and fauna play in the quality of life and its sustenance on the planet by showing practical methods of sustainability.
The Foundation aims to teach renewable alternatives to habitat destruction and to enlighten visitors and students to the innovations of energy production with low environmental impact.
Their educational programmes are attended by around 11,000 students every year from all over Kenya with lectures and guided tours of the Mt. Kenya Wildlife Conservancy.
In addition, they also run outreach programmes to 6 schools in rural areas and their communities, amounting to a further 6000 students per year.
As part of the William Holden Wildlife Education Center it includes many different examples of renewable agriculture and farming and, remarkably, the first breeding herd of Chilean llamas in Africa.
