Walrus Takes A Summer Vacation Across Europe

Imagine lounging on your yacht, soaking up the sun

and suddenly spotting a massive walrus trying to board your vessel.

This isn’t a scene from a quirky movie..

it’s the real-life adventure of Wally, the Atlantic walrus who decided to take a six-month vacation across Western Europe in 2021.

Wally’s journey began in March when he was first spotted on an island in Ireland.

The sight was so unusual that Ireland’s marine rescue teams immediately became interested.

“We were just absolutely floored because we’ve never seen a walrus here before,”  said one of the rescuers.

But Ireland was just the beginning. Wally then went to Wales, where he was described as a “giant baby” exploring his surroundings.

His curious nature and lack of fear towards humans meant that marine life rescue teams had to work hard to ensure his safety.

His journey didn’t stop there. Wally was spotted in Cornwall, La Rochelle in France, and even as far south as Bilbao in Spain.
