SINGAPORE: After encountering several attempts to block them from being brought to Singapore, a few Indo—pacific bottlenose dolphins have arrived in Singapore from the Philippines.

The dolphins arrived at Resorts World Sentosa’s (RWS) Marine Life Park on Monday and are currently under quarantine.

This came after it was reported that a court in the Philippines had issued export permits for them.

The dolphins are currently under the care of a team of veterinarians and marine mammal specialists, said RWS.

The park, which is set to open by December 7, will have 25 Indo—pacific bottlenose dolphins.
