Nuklu Phom founded the Lemsachenlok Society that has worked towards sensitizing locals about these rare falcons Once indiscriminately hunted, the falcons have in recent years seen a successful conservation story in the Northeast.

The award recognizes Phom’s efforts at establishing a new biodiversity peace corridor changing the fate of Amur Falcons, which come to roost in Nagaland each year, from being hunted by locals.
