Ruud Kleinpaste

Entomologist, storyteller and self-proclaimed “Nature Nerd”.

Ruud ‘The Bugman’ Kleinpaste has been an unofficial ambassador of the Treemendous initiative since the project began in 2007.

Now an official ambassador, Ruud brings his passion and knowledge of entomology to the Treemendous events, along with his insect friends to teach children a thing or two about native bugs and conservation!

Ruud has a talent for telling the stories of nature and inspiring people to take biodiversity seriously.

His branded Mazda BT-50 will be used to transfer bug enclosures across the country. Make sure to say hi if you see him around - he may be able to show you a creepy crawly or two.
