The Association for the Protection and Integrity of an Unspoilt Mars. An organisation founded by Brian Aldiss to promote the attitude that Mars should remain Mars, and not be colonised, terraformed, etc; this idea is expounded in his book White Mars (named by analogy to Antarctica, and of course as a riposte to Kim Stanley Robinson's Red Green Blue Mars trilogy).

APIUM seems not to have a website, but it is documented in The Ansible: <http://www.dcs.gla.ac.uk/SF-Archives/Ansible/a122.html>.
