Seashells thrive in the ecosystem around Elephant Beach, Havelock Island

A short trek through the tropical forests of Havelock Island leads one to the mangrove settlement of Elephant Beach. This is where one has to watch their step as the entire place is literally swarming with sea shells.

After walking through the mangrove slush, one finally arrives at the golden sands of the super secluded Elephant Beach. But, the movement of the sea shells continues even in the golden sands here.

The sea shells come in all shapes, colours and sizes. I have seen various live sea shells during my marine adventures, but, this was my first experience of sighting a conch shell, a very rare sight indeed.

It is very heartening to note that such near perfect ecosystems still survive and thus allowing some rare species to establish themselves here. Hope this ecosystem stays this way for many more years to come.
