Joanne Ocock

Where are you now?

I'm now working for the Water and Wetlands Team, Science Division in the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, as an environmental scientist. My primary focus is monitoring the ecological benefits of environmental watering for fauna in the wetlands of the Murray Darling Basin. I coordinate amphibian surveys across several catchments, and support waterbird diversity and breeding surveys. I am also involved in the development of long-term environmental watering plans for NSW inland valleys, which requires me to compile information on the water requirements of wetland-dependant fauna and investigate key knowledge gaps.

Continuing collaboration with the Centre?

I am collaborating with researchers at the Australian Museum to improve knowledge of Data-Deficient frog species in NSW and with waterbird research being carried out by Kate Brandis at the CES.
