Dolphins on the move!

Marine Life Oceanarium has received the permits it needs to move 17 dolphins to an exclusive resort in the Bahamas.

David Lion, newly appointed president of Marine Life and Marine Animal Productions, the company that owns the dolphins, confirmed the information Tuesday. The announcement comes a day after longtime Marine Life veterinarian Connie Chevis resigned her post.

Lion declined to say when and how the dolphins, famous for performing at the Gulfport oceanarium, will be moved.

According to Lion, Chevis left because she "felt her role with MAP was redundant with the many other fine doctors we have on board to look after the animals."
