Doug Watkins has been appointed Manager of Wetlands International - Oceania. Doug will continue to be based at our Canberra office that is hosted by Environment Australia. He will also continue to oversee implementation of the Shorebird Action Plan, a cornerstone project of Wetlands International which will be funded by Environment Australia through 2001-2002. Doug has been with Wetlands International since 1995 and has been asociated with shorebirds and wetlands work for more than 20 years. Added to this technical expertise is his enthusiasm for building cooperative networks and his commitment to securing conservation outcomes. Doug will bring new ideas and energy to the management of Wetlands International's operations in Australia and the Pacific Islands region, which now includes program or project offices in Canberra, Brisbane, Suva (Fiji) and Madang (PNG). He will lead the organisation at a time of substantial growth in our core programs on shorebird conservation, wetland inventory, biodiversity surveys and marine conservation. Roger Jaensch will be working for Wetlands International as Senior Program Officer responsible for wetland inventory and waterbird surveys especially in inland and northern Australia. This will occur through collaboration with Federal and State government agencies and with the scientific and NGO community. Special assistance, where required, will be provided to Doug as new Manager through his settling-in period.
