Purnima Devi Barman’s work on environmental conservation

Purnima Devi Barman, a Green Oscar Winner, has strived for nearly two decades to ensure the survival of the Greatest Adjutant Stork by creating an all-woman grassroots conservationist group called the ‘Hargila (the Assamese name for the bird) Army’ to save the bird from extinction.

The women in the group create and sell textiles with motifs of the bird, helping to raise awareness about the species while also building their own financial independence.

The conservation focus of the project is on motherhood and the Hargila Army celebrates baby showers before the eggs are hatched and also after the chicks are born. Barman informed that all the activists are mothers and housewives who contribute to the conservation of the stork which almost became extinct.
