ST. THOMAS — Coral World has received permission from the Coastal Zone Management Committee to import four new dolphins to its St. Thomas facility.

The committee’s three members, A. Winston Adams, Sarah “Peggy” Simmonds and Karl Percell, voted unanimously Thursday evening at a decision hearing at Turnbull Library to grant a request for modification to Coral World’s existing permit and allow for a total of eight dolphins to be housed at the underwater enclosure in Water Bay.
