The Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust

Based at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust is dedicated to protecting the area’s unique indigenous fauna and flora, in collaboration with appropriate authorities, local communities and other stakeholders. Projects include but are not limited to, rehabilitation of injured or orphaned wildlife, anti-poaching and wildlife veterinary assistance where required, assisting with community based projects, and a children's conservation education program.

The Victoria Falls Anti Poaching Unit

VFAPU

The Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of our local wildlife and natural resources. However with the beauty of the location comes with some heavy burdens of human and animal conflict. VFAPU tries to ease some of the burdens by protecting the wildlife and habitat from poacher pressure (subsistence and commercial), as well rescue and rehabilitate animals injured by human interference. Additionally, we try to train and find employment for ex-poachers so that they have a sustainable income without doing harm to flora and fauna. Education is also important, and VFAPU and its partners try to reach children at an early age through school and community awareness programs.
