JUNO BEACH, Fla. -- Loggerhead Marinelife Center is working hard to get things back to normal after hurricane Dorian.

WPTV got an exclusive look inside the turtle hospital on Wednesday as turtles are being returned back to their tanks after being dry docked for three days.

During the storm, the turtles were placed into “beds” inside a building secured with sandbags.

Volunteers are now working to put everything from fans, tarps, signage and other items back into place.

The lead sea turtle doctor at the hospital also has a strong message for people who find baby sea turtles and sea turtle eggs on the beach.

In partnership with Palm Beach County Parks, Loggerhead Marinelife Center will reopen its campus to the guests and the community Thursday, September 5, at 10 a.m.

At this time, all normal activities will resume, unless notified otherwise.
