Activists vow to continue the fight to stop export of Solomons dolphins

Updated 22 October 2012, 10:08 AEDT

Animal rights activists say they will continue the fight to stop the export of 25 dolphins from the Philippines to Singapore, and have them returned to Solomon Islands.

The dolphins are being imported by Resorts World Singapore from the Solomon Islands, and are being held in a Philippines marine park awaiting transfer. 

Earlier this week activists welcomed the decision of a Manila court which issued a 72-hour temporary protection order to stop the export of the dolphins.  However a judge has now lifted the injunction, allowing for the dolphins to be taken to Singapore.
