VFAPU is a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of local wildlife and natural resources. VFAPU tries to ease some of the burdens on the wildlife 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.

Using Faber Castell Polychromos colouring pencils, Charlotte is able to create incredibly lifelike and soulful drawings of any animal.
The original photographs were taken by Victoria Falls resident, Tommy Varley who has spent a considerable amount of time in Hwange National Park taking photos of all of the wildlife. He has a stunning collection of images of wildlife and landscapes, including the Victoria Falls.
