WII employees enjoyed the talk on Kailash-Manas Natural and Cultural heritage by Professor Shekhar Pathak
Over 250 members of WII, including eminent scientists, wildlife managers, researchers and students of wildlife sciences celebrated ‘Himalaya Day’ in Wildlife Institute of India. People of Uttarakhand are aware that on this day in the year 2010, a group of environmentalists and civil society members led by Dr. Anil Joshi urged the government to formulate a focused policy for saving the Himalaya and its people. Following this, a manifesto was prepared and submitted to the government based on a year-long nation-wide debate and discussions. Since then, this day is celebrated as 'Himalaya Day' to spread the message that solutions for sustainable development and ecological stability for the Himalayas must be as unique as the Himalayan ecosystem itself. The state government has officially declared September 9 as ‘Himalaya Diwas’ – a day which will be celebrated across the State to spread the message of conservation of the Himalayan ecosystems. The focal theme for the year 2015 is "Sab ka Himalaya".
