A Manila court has issued a 72-hour temporary protection order to stop 25 dolphins, originally from Solomon Islands, from being exported to Singapore.
The court has also banned the importation of more dolphins, saying the journey would harm them.
A petition was filed by environmental and animal welfare groups against the Philippines Fisheries Bureau and Agriculture Department.
They argued exporting the dolphins would be a violation of wildlife laws.
The 25 dolphins were being imported by Resorts World Singapore from the Solomon Islands, and were being held in a Philippines marine park awaiting transfer.
