About APN

About APN:

When it all began

The Arab Group for the Protection of Nature (APN), was established as a member-based non-profit organization in April, 2003 by a group of motivated persons concerned with the protection of the environment and the natural resources in Arab countries against all hazards including the destructive impacts of wars and foreign occupations. APN is managed by a board of directors composed of seven members elected by a general assembly. Its work is guided by the resolve, commitment and dedication of its members and aided by the engagement of its supporters.
