Nuklu Phom was recently awarded the prestigious Whitley Award from the Whitley Fund for Nature. Nuklu has been instrumental in leading efforts to preserve the Amur Falcon in Nagaland, India. The Amur Falcon is the world's longest migrating bird of prey and Nagaland is a critical stop along their long migration. Over a decade ago, Amur Falcons were being poached in the tens of thousands. However, Nuklu helped organize a grassroots effort to not only halt the poaching, but also preserve Nagaland's natural resources. His project that is being supported by the Whitley Fund for Nature is called "Establishing a biodiversity peace corridor in Nagaland." He is a true conservation hero and his story is one that needs to be told.
