One of the world's rarest turtles washes up on UK beach 4,000 miles from home

One of the world's rarest turtles has washed up on a North Wales beach more than 4,000 miles from home.

The discovery of a juvenile Kemp's Ridley sea turtle was found stranded on Talacre beach on Sunday and has since been transferred to Anglesey Sea Zoo for specialist intensive care.

The species is protected with just two known breeding sites remaining globally - both in the western Gulf of Mexico.

Although it is currently responding well to treatment, the turtle is in a serious condition from its ordeal and may not survive.

Its progress over the next few days should give an indication of its long-term prospects.



One of the world's rarest turtles is beginning to show signs of recovery after washing up on the Welsh coast.
