The Andaman Islands are located in the Indian Ocean between India and Myanmar. Only 27 of the 500 islands of the archipelago are inhabited, and the main source of income of the people has become forestry. Because of that the elephants are very important here. They do the basic job of transporting timber.
French photographer Olivier Blaise took two elephants Sarasu and Chandi to swim underwater. Both belong to a wealthy landowner on one of the islands. Elephants can be working on several islands, and they have been taught to swim from one island to another.
