Judith has volunteered her time, passion for conservation and leadership to BirdLife Australia and its predecessor organisations for over 20 years which, in 2012, led her to become convenor of BirdLife Southern Queensland. Since that time she has developed the first business plan for BirdLife Southern Queensland, been involved in helping to save the Yandina Creek Wetlands, undertaken extensive media work to educate and promote bird conservation in south-east Queensland, guiding BirdLife Southern Queensland’s role as a founding group of Protect the Bush Alliance and coordinating dialogue with government agencies to prevent development of important wetlands for threatened shorebird species. The award of a BDSA (BirdLife Australia Distinguished Service Award) recognises her inspirational leadership and long term role in advocacy and conservation programs for the preservation of birds and their habitat in Southern Queensland.
