William Holden Wildlife Foundation
jquery slideshow by WOWSlider.com v8.2

Although William Holden's illustrious acting career spanned over 40 years, and included nearly 80 films plus a coveted Oscar for STALAG 17, the role in which he took the most pride was as a conservationist and co-founder of the Mount Kenya Game Ranch. His dedicated efforts to preserve the wildlife so precious to all of us soon expanded throughout the world, as he instilled in everyone he touched a reverence for nature's creatures.

In his memory, I founded the William Holden Wildlife Foundation, in cooperation with his former partners, to carry on his important efforts and to meet the ever-increasing demand for alternatives to extinction. The foundation's education program currently serves over 10,000 students per year. Overhead expenses in the United States are underwritten through the generosity of a single donor, ensuring that virtually 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes directly to our work.

We hope you will consider participating in our present and in our future.

As you may know, the U.S. government has quietly lifted its ban on the import of elephant and lion hunt trophies from Zambia and Zimbabwe. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials first moved to lift the ban in November 2017, until a huge global outcry led to a temporary hold. This new policy supersedes that decision, making it legal for Americans to bring body parts from elephants and lions killed for sport back to the United States. Hunters can now receive permits for trophy items on a 'case by case' basis. Click Here to find out what you can do to protect these animals.
