How I got into Ecological Conservation?
Dr Harshwanti Bisht: "I am a mountaineer. In 1981, I along with two other women became the first three women to summit the main peak of Nanda Devi (7,816 m). I was also a member of the Indian expedition to Mount Everest in 1984 and was awarded the Arjuna Award and Directorate of Higher Education, Government of UP Gold Medal. I am the Founder of Save Gangotri Project. I was awarded the Sir Edmund Hillary Medal for my philanthropic achievements and work to improve conditions in the Gangotri area of Uttarakhand, at the headwaters of the Ganges over the past 25 years. I am Deputy Director (Higher education) & Joint Director (RUSA) and actively working for the eco-conservation of Gangotri in Garhwal Himalaya."
