Protea Atlas Project Website Launch

The Protea Atlas Protect website was officialy launched at a function at the National Botanical Institute, Kirstenbosch on 11 March 1998.

Our website was honoured from 12 March 1998 till the end of that month by Independent Online, a large newspaper group, who had a link to the Protea Atlas Project on their opening page!! The link was then moved to Independent Online's New Developments section where it currently resides.

Here are some photographs that were taken at the launch:
