SINGAPORE: The Philippines authorities have approved the export of 25 Indo—pacific bottlenose dolphins to Resorts World Sentosa’s Marine Life Park.
Animal welfare groups in the Philippines had tried to block export of the dolphins in a court case, which they lost last month.
A Marine Life Park spokesperson said the park is pleased to receive the permit and looks forward to welcoming the dolphins to their new residence.
The park said it has followed all international and multi—national regulations and guidelines.
For over three years, the dolphins have been under the care and supervision of a team of veterinarians and marine mammal specialists.
