Stefanie Powers – a theatre, television and film actress and avid animal advocate – was recently offered a seat on the advisory council for the International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros (ISPMB)) and is happy to announce that she has accepted.

Powers’s claim to fame is her successful career as an American actress, during which she played Jennifer Hart in a mystery TV series called Hart to Hart. The role earned her award nominations for Golden Globes (five nominations) and Primetime Emmys (two nominations). However, aside from acting, Powers is extremely passionate about protecting animals, especially horses. It is for this reason that Powers was selected as the newest member of the ISPMB advisory council.

Powers said her stepfather spent his time rescuing exotic animals and raising thoroughbred racehorses. In addition, she ended up “rescuing” a Malaysian Sun Bear cub she found for sale at a West Hollywood pet shop. Later in life, she drew inspiration from conservationist/actor William Holden, who co-created the Mount Kenya Game Ranch. Following his death, Powers and Holden’s former business partners developed a public charity known as the William Holden Wildlife Foundation to further promote the protection of wild animals.

While on the ISPMB advisory council, Powers will continue to work to preserve wild animals, namely horses, by advising the international society on its future decisions and key decisions. On the council, she joins several other experts in the areas of law, Native American traditions, conservation, and business. The council anticipates bringing on even more experts in the future, including landscape designers, veterinarians, architects, and financial advisors.

The council’s key focus at the moment is its recently commenced flagship project, an International Wild Horse and Burro Heritage CENTER (CENTER) in South Dakota. The center will allow visitors to go on wild mustang safaris in the Black Hills, which will help them to develop an even greater appreciation for these unique creatures in the years ahead, according to the ISPMB.
