Acknowledgments



This application would not have been possible without the leadership and forward thinking of Marjo Louw and Jack Saba of Sasol Qatar, originators of the concept in 2013, and the full support of Dr. Saif Al-Hajari, Chairman, Friends of the Environment Centre (FEC). The first application of its kind in the Arab world, funded by Sasol, became a reality thanks to their persistence in making the application a primary source of information about Qatar’s rich nature in Arabic and English.

Sasol and FEC greatly appreciate all the contributors to the application in its various sections:

Special Thanks go to the Supreme Education Council (SEC) for supporting and promoting the Qatar e-Nature application and distributing it to all schools in Qatar.

Special mention goes to:
Ms.  Fauzia Abdulaziz Al-Khater – Director of the Education Institute, SEC
Mr. Issam Jamil Azouri – Communication Adviser at the minister’s office, SEC

Sasol would like to express their sincere gratitude to everyone who provided support and offered content to make this mobile application a reality.
