Ten years after his death, actor William Holden remains a legend in Kenya, where a foundation that bears his name is shaping the attitudes of African children toward wildlife and the environment. These are new concerns for Africa. Traditionally, trees were viewed as being useful only for firewood, wildlife a nuisance unless it provided ivory or food and land a resource that could be used indefinitely with little thought given to proper management.

Now the mayor is giving us a demonstration of his proficiency in chimp-ese as a second language.
