  • Distinguished Green Oscar awardee Dr Purnima Devi Barman, who has also won the Nari Shakti Puraskar, was recently conferred the World Female Ranger Award-2022 by the global body ‘How Many Elephants.’


  • Dedicated to recognising exemplary conservation work and service, the World Female Ranger Award honours female wildlife rangers around the globe.
  • Dr Barman has dedicated her life to saving the greater adjutant storks (locally called hargila), and gradually formed an army of women to save the species.
  • The team also developed the world’s first artificial breeding platform for chicks, which allows them to hatch safely and address the issue of shrinking habitats faced by the birds.
