Port Authority restricts access to Hvaldimir for his protection

May 27, 2019 -

In order to avoid potential inappropriate human behaviors and to promote Hvaldimir's safety, the Port Authority of Hammerfest restricted dock access to boat owners only. A restricted dock space used for the daily care of Hvaldimir was also assigned with access restricted to Hvaldimir's care-takers only. Norwegian Orca Survey and Hammerfest Kommune developed a code of conduct communicated through information signs put up in town.
