Walrus moves on from Isles of Scilly

Some great news last week from our friends at Seal Rescue Ireland! The walrus which we have been heavily involved with managing for the last six weeks at the Isles of Scilly has finally made his move and headed north!

We hope after having spent enough time recuperating after his jaunt from South Wales to Scilly via Spain, that this is a good sign he now has the energy to power himself back to the Arctic. We will of course continue to keep an eye on his travels and assist our colleagues should any help and advice be needed.

We would like to thank everyone who has been involved with caring for the walrus over the last few weeks at Scilly, including St Mary’s Harbour Office, Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust, St Agnes Boating, Marine Management Organisation, Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Natural England, Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust and Cornish Seal Sanctuary.
