17 rare sea turtles were found with multiple ailments off the coast of Cape Cod Massachusetts.

The turtles have been brought to a Mass aquarium to recover before being let back into the ocean.

The turtles were rescued by volunteers with the Massachusetts Audubon Sanctuary at Wellfleet Bay. They had body temperatures in the 50s when they should have been in the 70s.

The turtles usually migrate to warmer waters in the winter, but officials say strong winds on Wednesday most likely drove the turtles to shore.

At least they were saved before it was too late!
