Researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have made the first recording of one of the planet's rarest whales, according to NBC Washington.

The marine biologists recorded patterns of calls from male North Pacific right whales, the first time any right whale songs have been recorded, NOAA Fisheries marine biologist Jessica Crance told NBC.

Over eight years, researchers traced four distinct songs at five locations in the Bering Sea off Alaska's coast, Crance said. The research began in 2010, when NOAA Fisheries researchers said they heard strange sound patterns they could not identify, NBC reported.

Canada bans whale, dolphin captivity

Canada bans whale, dolphin captivity Canadian lawmakers passed legislation on Monday banning whale and dolphin captivity in the country.The federal bill - which was approved in the House of Commons on Monday after first being introduced in the Senate in 2015 - now requires only royal assent to become law. Under the new law, the practice of holding whales, dolphins and porpoises will be phased out, though animals currently in captivity will remain. It also bans the capture of wild dolphins and whales, or cetaceans, as well as the practice of captive breeding and the import and export of such animals.

The researchers reviewed long-term data from recorders for seven years before being able to determine the song was coming from a right whale.

Scientists make first recording of rare whale song In 2017, the team heard a whale song in real time from the acoustic recorders on buoys. They were able to confirm that the sound was coming from the rare species while they tracked the animals in the water.

"It was great to finally get the confirmation when we were out at sea that yes, it is a right whale, and it's a male that's singing," Crance told NBC.

The team said the discovery has led them to more questions about the species as a whole, including whether the North Pacific right whales are unique or if all right whales sing.

Scientists make first recording of rare whale song "It could be that there are so few of them left, they feel the need to call more frequently or sing," Crance said. "This is entirely speculation, but perhaps they're copying humpbacks, a little bit. Our right whales are frequently seen associating with humpbacks."

Canada Passes Legislation To Ban Whales And Dolphins From Being Kept In Captivity

Canada Passes Legislation To Ban Whales And Dolphins From Being Kept In Captivity A federal bill banning the keeping of whales and dolphins in captivity jumped its last parliamentary hoop, and will become Canadian law by the end of June. Bill S-203, the so-called “Free Willy” bill, was passed by the House of Commons at third reading Monday. “Today is a really good day for animals in Canada,” Green Party Leader Elizabeth May said. The bill, which originated in the Senate, amends the Criminal Code to make it illegal to keep a..

Alaska (AP) - Scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have recorded singing by a rare right whale for the first time. Right whales make sounds described as gunshot calls, upcalls, screams and warbles. Crance says a male putting the sounds in song patterns may by

Only an estimated 30 of the animals remain. The whales remain buoyant after they are killed, making them a target for whalers.

‘Lost City of the Monkey God’ is filled with rare and unknown creatures.
Scientists excavating a lost city shrouded in legend in the jungles of Honduras have found many rare and threatened animals - including animals thought to be extinct. Travelers and locals had shared legends of the Lost City of the Monkey God - where a God is said to have fathered half-human, half-monkey children. Researchers found unique animals at the site (Conservation) The so-called ‘City of the Monkey God’ was supposedly sighted by explorer Theodor Morde in 1940 - but he never revealed its precise location, and later committed suicide.
