Kathy Ridge

Kathy Ridge has a long association with wetlands and water quality – although for many years she stuck mainly to the coast.

In 1999, as Executive Officer of the Nature Conservation Council of NSW (NCC NSW), she began to take a more active interest in inland wetlands and rivers, through member groups Inland Rivers Network and the Coasts and Wetlands Society.

“I am excited by the opportunities groups like MDWWG have to have a healthy focussed debate around particular assets and get on with delivering water for improved environmental and social outcomes.”

After NCC NSW, Kathy focussed building on her legal experience and expertise working with the Chief Judge of the Land and Environment Court of NSW, the Hon Mahla Pearlman AO and Phillips Fox, prior to establishing her own firm, Ridge & Associates Pty Ltd.

Kathy is a member of the Commonwealth Environmental Water Office, Stakeholder Reference Panel.
