Only a few records exist of juvenile Kemp’s ridley turtles that stranded alive on European shores. The waters there are too cold for Kemp’s ridleys to survive. In recent years, a few have been rescued, rehabilitated, returned to North America, and released into the Gulf of Mexico. Many people and organizations are to be thanked for making these heroic, highly-publicized efforts possible.

Flip is a juvenile Kemp’s ridley that was rescued after stranding in Holland on December 10, 2011 and was repatriated to the Gulf of Mexico on November 9, 2012. Details of Flip’s rescue and rehabilitation can be accessed by clicking here to link to Flip’s page: Sea Life Scheveningen
