We just want to meet the new Walrus, to be honest.
Walruses have never ventured over to Ireland to see what we’ve got to offer. Until now, that is.
Arriving in a rather kingly man, asleep on a floating iceberg (like a boss), Ireland’s first ever Walrus appeared on Sunday (March 15). It is thought to have drifted through the Atlantic Ocean to Valentina Island in Co. Kerry.
Of course, a snap surfaced online and the internet immediately fell in love. Clearly, we are all the walrus!
Sadly, the walrus seems to be a lone traveller, so let’s hope he can hit up his group of friends again soon. After all, social distancing isn’t an issue in the deep, dark ocean… yet.
The Irish Whale & Dolphin Group have requested that people ‘”observe this wayward traveller from a safe distance and to give it the space it requires and submit any subsequent sightings to the IWDG sighting scheme.” Members of the public can do just that via this link.
Mood all day:
