Judy Frankenberg, Vice-Chair of the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group Ltd. (MDWWG), has been on the committee of the working group since its inception. She was on the Murray Catchment Management Committee which was the precursor of the current Murray Catchment Management Authority.

For more than 30 years Judy and husband Roger have run a Red Angus beef cattle stud and Wiltshire Horn sheep at their 225 ha farm near Howlong, NSW.

Judy is a scientist with expertise in floodplain and wetland management. For the past 40 years she has worked in the environmental field. She was a part-time research scientist at The Murray-Darling Freshwater Research Centre from 1987 to 2000, investigation the role of vegetation in bank stability and contributing to research on floodplain wetlands.

“I’m a plant ecologist with an interest in wetland ecology and I find my involvement with the Working Group enormously satisfying.”

Judy continues to work as an environmental consultant on projects. She has worked in dryland and wetland environments throughout Victoria and southern NSW where she has carried out vegetation assessments for many different projects, developed a Willow Management Strategy for the Goulburn Broken CMA and contributed to a number of creek and river management strategies.
