Reuben Heydenrych is qualified as a landscape architect and environmental scientist and works as an environmental manager for a large vehicle manufacturer in Pretoria.

He has always been passionate about indigenous plants and about the environment. He sees the Protea Atlas Project as an ideal way of contributing actively to conservation and improving his knowledge of the veld. He joined the Protea Atlas Project in July 1998 and spends as much time as possible in wild and unspoilt places, looking for new and exciting finds.
