Way Off Course
Two Kemp's ridley sea turtles have been found washed up on Britain's shores. One was at Llannon in west Wales; the other was early this month on the Isle of Tiree. They are members of an endangered species and require special handling whether dead or alive. The Marine Conservation Society is keen to see that stranded creatures are carefully prepared for return to the waters or be given a suitable post-mortem.
