So I read that article about elephants interacting with the skulls of dead elephants within their territories and decided to pose my Colombian Mammoths stumbling across a skull of one of their own. There’s no evidence to suggest that they can recognize an individual by their skull but considering their great abilities to remember you can’t help but imagine them trying to recall if it’s an individual they knew.

Visiting Creatures in Need with Charlie Hamilton James

To see more of Charlie’s photography from around the world, follow @chamiltonjames on Instagram.

After spending several months during the course of a year in Africa shooting a story on wildlife poisoning, National Geographic photographer Charlie Hamilton James (@chamiltonjames) enjoyed his final day on assignment photographing (and cuddling) orphaned elephants. “On one level, it’s lovely, and on another level, it’s very sad. There’s a bit of a weird sort of emotional shift going on at the same time,” explains Charlie, who traveled to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (@dswt) in Kenya to see Roi, a young elephant who lost his mother to a poison dart. “Every single one of those elephants has seen some horrific trauma in its life.” Charlie offers advice to those who want to get involved on #WorldWildlifeDay but may not be traveling to Africa anytime soon: “The thing we can do is think locally,” he says. “Consider the animals on your own doorstep, and fight to protect them.”
