Meet the VFAPU team

VFAPU is under no illusion that we can completely stop poaching, but with the support of various stakeholders, companies, hotels, lodges and individuals we have been able to achieve significant successes to date. Since the unit’s establishment, we have removed over 22,000 wire snares from our operational area and have arrested over 750 hardened poachers.
