The heart-wrenching story of our lonely whale starts in 1989, when the U.S. Navy discovered a strange 52-hertz frequency on their under water microphones. Unsure of what was causing the noise at first, bio-acoustian William Watkins eventually determined the sound was being made by a solitary whale, calling out at a frequency that confused and drove off other whales.
Unable to communicate with others of its kind, this creature was probably the loneliest whale in the world.
Watkins was determined to change that and began a 12-year search for the animal, whom he dubbed 52 for the whale's unique frequency. Unfortunately, Watkins passed away in 2004, and the mission to find Lonely Whale came to a halt.
