The threat of plastic pollution to wildlife in the Channel Islands is affecting thousands of gannets.
For decades, Les Etacs off the coast of Alderney, has been a sanctuary for thousands of breeding Gannets, but experts say the seabirds are literally being strangled by plastic waste.
The northern gannets migrate to breed in Alderney and are mistaking fishing nets for seaweed.
Wildlife experts in Alderney are due to carry out research this summer to find out how many birds are dying as a result of plastic pollution, and what can be done to help.
The Alderney Wildlife Trust believes that all of the nests on the Les Etacs rocks contain some plastic but it is unknown how many birds are dying as a result.
