Marine rescuers in Ireland rescued a stranded dolphin that needed a lift back into the deeper waters.

According to news agency United Press International, members of the public reported the stranded Risso’s dolphin.

Animal rescue charity ORCA Ireland then deployed volunteers to Magheroarty Beach in County Donegal.

In a Facebook post, the dolphin needed to return immediately to the water in order to survive.

They also shared photos of the volunteers removing seaweed from the dolphin’s body.

ORCA Ireland appeals to the public to keep an eye out for distressed dolphins and report them to the group.

Meanwhile, an animal rescuer spotted a walrus on the coast of Wales, possibly the first such sighting in the area.

According to various news reports online, the animal lounged near the bottom of a cliff in Pembrokeshire.

Ellie West from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said it looked surreal.

“I have to admit my main emotion is feeling quite sad that this poor guy has turned up over here on a very long journey,” West added.

The Irish Whale and Dolphin Group confirmed that the walrus came from the coast of Ireland a week earlier.
