Friends of the Environment Centre (FEC) is an environmental organization established in 1992 in Qatar with the goal of promoting environmental awareness and developing conservation initiatives. As of 2015, the organization is chaired by Saif Al Hajari. The FEC has taken an active role in raising local awareness of the negative effects associated with tobacco smoking. Methods employed include organizing international conferences and preparing studies detailing its economic, health and environmental effects. An annual event known as A Flower Each Spring is organized by the FEC to promote environmental awareness. During the event, numerous field trips and fairs are held with the aim of acquainting participants with Qatar's local fauna.
