The loneliest whale in the world

In 2004, The New York Times wrote an articles about the loneliest whale in the world. Scientist have been tracking her since 1992 and they discovered the problem.

She isn't like any other baleen whale. Unlike all other whales, she doesn't have friends,She deosn't have a family, She doesn't belong to any tribe, pack or gang, She doesn't have a lover. She never had one.

Her songs come in groups of two six calls, lasting for five to six seconds each, but her voice is unlike any other baleen whale. It is unique while the rest of the kind communicate between 12 and 25hz, she sings at 52hz, you see that's precisely the problem.

No other whales can hear her, every one of her desperate calls to communicate remains unanswered, each cry ignored and with every lonely song, she becomes sadder and more fustrated, her notes going deeper in despair as they years go by.
