South Carolinians now can purchase a new dolphin license plate at all S.C. DMV offices.

All funds from plate purchases will go to EarthEcho International programs that help protect ocean environments, freshwater systems and wild dolphins.

Philippe Cousteau, the grandson of famous oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, founded EarthEcho with his sister and mother.

Cousteau met with key community conservation leaders at the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston and traveled to other cities in the state to promote the license plates during the summer.
