    For a historical review on lost dolphinariums in Belgium and Luxemburg I’m trying to find as much information as possible about their history, animals, the owners and staff, the building, number of visitors, exceptional events (such as births, …), the reason why and when the dolphinarium closed, what happened with the animals, and so on …

    Especially I’m looking for information about:
    - dolphinarium in ‘Parc de Récréation et Loisirs’ in Huy (Hoei), 1977-1980, this was a department of the dolphinarium in Harderwijk
    - dolphins in Walibi (Wavre/Waver), 1977-1984
    - dolphinarium in ‘Wildpark Hosingen’, 1977-

    I already tried to find information on internet and via other sources but it seems very difficult to find the details I’m looking for. Who can provide me photocopies of news paper cuttings, photos or postcards, tourist information, brochures, leaflets or guidebooks or other information and details about these three dolphinariums?
