Purnima Devi Barman

Biologist Poornima Devi Barman has been awarded the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) 2022 Champions of the Earth Award in the Entrepreneurial Vision category. Poornima leads the “Hargila Army”. Its purpose is to save the Greater Adjutant Stork from extinction.

Dedicated to the Greater Adjutant Stork, the organization is staffed exclusively by women. Wildlife conservation work being done at the grassroots level has taken the form of a movement. The women make and sell clothing, which has bird motifs on it, which helps raise awareness. This initiative also gives financial independence to these women.

Purnima explains that the Hargila Army, dedicated to the Greater Adjutant Stork, aims to raise awareness about the bird species. Associating with local women helps a lot. According to the report, Purnima is also the senior project manager at the Guwahati-based organization Barman Avifauna Research and Conservation Division, Aranyak.

According to information published on the website of the UN Environment Program (UNEP), at the age of just five, Poornima Barman was sent to live with her grandmother on the banks of the Brahmaputra River in Assam. She said, “After being separated from her parents and siblings, Purnima of childhood became inconsolable.
