A baby walrus was rescued in Alaska after being stranded.

The adorable calf was found near Barrow, Alaska after it was separated from a larger group as they floated on rapidly moving sea ice.

According to the Associated Press, the male calf is about four to six weeks old.

It is now being cared for at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward.

The Daily Mail reported that local fisherman saw the calf in the lagoon by itself and caught it.

It is not clear whether it will be released back into the wild.
