Hey everyone,

I graduated last year with a degree in Pyschobiology and would like to work with marine mammals. My boyfriend and our 1 year old daughter are looking to move down south (from Maine) and have looked into South Carolina as an option. I was hoping to get some feedback of where the best areas to move for this job oppurtunity would be and what the average cost of living is in these areas.

Any point in the right direction would be great!

Thanks all

The aquarium in Charleston is pretty large although I do not recall a dolphin exhibit. There is also the Ripley's Aquarium in Myrtle Beach which is not as big. That's about the extent of my marine mammal knowledge, sorry.

The lowcountry of SC offers the best opportunities. Charleston, SC and Savannah or Tybee Island, GA are possibilities. SC Dep. of Natural Resources would somewhere to check.

That's because there isn't one. It's illegal to keep dolphins in captivity in the state of South Carolina.

Turtles....you need to find out about Sea Turtles (Loggerhead primarily). The protection groups around here are good though it's more of a summer job. It's very fun.
