World's Loneliest Whale Sings At The Wrong Frequency

In 2004, The New York Times wrote an article about the loneliest whale in the world. Scientists have been tracking her since 1992 and they know the problem: Her voice is unlike any other baleen whale. While the rest of her kind communicate between 12 and 25hz, she sings at 52hz. No other whales can hear her. “A cryptozoologist has suggested that the 52-Hertz whale could even be a hybrid between two different species of whale, or the last survivor of an unidentified species. She is alone.

The loneliest whale in the world: The whale whose unique call has stopped him finding love

The Loneliest Whale in the World: since 1989, a lovelorn whale has been tracked by scientist up and down the Pacific northwest coast of North America. His long, low moans travel unanswered through the ocean at 52 hertz- more than 30 hertz above regular blue or fin whale tones. Other whales cannot hear him therefore he continues to roam the ocean without a mate or companions. 52 Hertz has become a symbol of loneliness for people who are forced to aimlessly travel through life alone.
