When passing by all of Charleston's beautiful beaches, she often noticed that the sea turtles seemed stressed. The mermaid set out to investigate the problem and find a solution to save the turtles!
After discovering a simple solution to the turtles' problems, the Mermaid of Charleston dedicates her life to make sure the island's sea turtles are safe and happy.

The Mermaid of Charleston is back for a second adventure! This time, she's on a quest to save the area's dolphins from becoming injured by boats' propellers when boaters try to feed the beautiful creatures. But how can she find a trustworthy human to help her?
Thankfully, Captain Rick enters the scene, assisting the Mermaid of Charleston in educating boaters so her dolphin friends are kept safe and happy.
