Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust believes a holistic approach to conservation is necessary to protect southern Africa’s majestic wildlife. We employ best science, community participation, and visionary and practical management in our anti-poaching efforts, wildlife conservation, rescue and rehabilitation, human-wildlife conflict mitigation, and research to prevent the spread of zoonotic diseases. We’re synergistically stewarding a culture of coexistence with wildlife throughout the region among local communities, NGOs, wildlife agencies and others.

Rescue and Rehabilitation Program

The Trust works to conserve all wildlife. In cases in which wildlife has been injured or orphaned due to human interference we will assist in looking after that animal. Learn More
