APOLLO BEACH, Fla. (WFLA) – The Florida Aquarium opened its $4.1 million sea turtle rehabilitation center in Apollo Beach on Wednesday.

The two-story, 8,3000 square foot center features five different rehabilitation pools.

It will also house the state’s deepest turtle dive pool.

That will help Florida Fish and Wildlife officers assess turtles before they are released back into the wild.
