The big storms a few weeks ago caused loads of problems across the country - trees were blown down, power lines were cut and roofs were torn off houses.

But it wasn't just us humans that had a hard time: seal pups were caught up in the bad weather too.

The RSPCA has said it's seen a big increase in sick seals recently.

The storms made it really hard for some of the grey seals to find their way to food and the choppy water meant lots of them were stranded on rocks.

Ricky has been to one wildlife centre to see the three-step plan the pups are put on to help get them back into the water - and it involves a LOT of fish!
