Two years after Tally, a Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle was spotted in Northern Wales, she is making her way back home to Texas.

A rehabilitated sea turtle will make its way to the water once more thanks to help from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. 

Tally, a Kemp’s Ridley Sea turtle, will be released into the Gulf of Mexico come September. Tally was initially found on the shores of Talacre Beach in Northern Wales in November of 2021 on the brink of death, according to a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service news release.

A dog walker reported Tally dead to the British Divers’ Marine Life Rescue, but Anglesey Sea zoo biologist Gem Simmons determined that Tally was still alive. 

Zoo Director Frankie Hobro collaborated with Simmons to provide months of intensive care for Tally. Since then, Tally has made a full recovery.
