Fellow Since 1990
This profile was prepared when Anisuzzaman Khan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1990.
Anisuzzaman Khan, a trained and committed wildlife biologist, would far prefer to spend his time on a Bangladeshi riverbank than in the air-conditioned bank office where he has been working. He's building a movement of similarly committed workers (they must spend at least 100 hours a year in the field to stay members), the Nature Conservation Movement to help Bangladesh find a new, sustainable, harmonious equilibrium between its people and all aspects of the natural world.
