Five injured turtles from Florida in America have come to be treated at a special sanctuary in Dorset.

They've been brought over after suffering various injuries, like their shells being damaged by boats.

There are so many in Florida that they've had to come to the UK to be looked after.

They've all lost the ability to dive - but are now getting intensive care to help them.
