June 11, 2019

A risk assessment was compiled by E. Jourdain (Norwegian Orca Survey). Main identified risks to Hvaldimir while being in the harbor of Hammerfest included boat collision, pollution and inappropriate human behaviors. Therefore, Hvaldimir's current habitat was concluded unsafe. Relocating him to a safer designated fjord nearby was recommended.
