LEGACY SHOW: Actress Stefanie Powers on conservation and Treasure Hunter Kirsten Gum
This broadcast is a favorite legacy show that we produced under our old name Travel’n On and before re-branding as WORLD FOOTPRINTS. Stefanie Powers will talk about her conservation work.
Have you ever descended into the depths of a mine, or panned for gold in Alaska? It’s all in a day’s work for Kristen Gum, host of the Travel Channel’s Treasure Hunter and World Footprints will explore the treasures of the world on today’s “Best Of…” show.
Then World Footprints will be joined by Hollywood actress Stefanie Powers who is keeping alive the African legacy of the late film star William Holden, who established a well-known game ranch and sanctuary in Kenya. Stefanie Powers will talk about her “Hart” for animals and her conservation work. It was Holden, “a man of great fun, depth, and adventure,” who introduced to Stefanie a distinctive and enriching personal obsession in East Africa: the Mount Kenya Game Ranch. His work in the conservation and preservation of endangered species in East Africa began long before the issue became popular, and he pioneered the concept of a game ranch in Kenya. After his death, Powers established the William Holden Wildlife Foundation to carry on with his passion and his legacy to her. She built her own oasis on the foothills of Mount Kenya and lives part time in one of the most magnificent landscapes on Earth.
