A seal pup washed up at Jaoneuse Bay on Guernsey's west coast on Monday has been taken into care.
The pup appeared malnourished
The Guernsey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA) is looking after the grey Atlantic seal at its sanctuary on the island.
The GSPCA was concerned that the seal, thought to be about 20-days-old, found near Pembroke, appeared undernourished.
Seals are a common sight around the island which has a resident population of about 11 grey Atlantic seals.
Pups have been washed ashore before, especially during gales in the pupping season around August.
Jane Le Cras of the GSPCA said the pup could be kept at the sanctuary, or taken to another in the UK.
She said: "If we think it is a strong pup, we might decide to rear it ourselves and release it locally.
"It depends on how much time and money it takes. We may not be able to afford to keep it, so we will then send it to a sanctuary in Norfolk or Gweek in Cornwall."
