The Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit (VFAPU) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of our local wildlife and natural resources.

Surrounded by the Victoria Falls National Park, the town of Victoria Falls is located in one of the most beautiful environments on earth, with unspoiled expanses of wilderness, abundant wildlife and spectacular settings, drawing tourists from around the world.

However, 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 rescuing and rehabilitating animals injured by human interference. Additionally, we do all we can to train ex-poachers in new skills so they find alternative avenues of revenue creation to give them 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.
