Marine biologists have, for the first time, will appear in the “song” of the rare eastern North Pacific right whale, of which fewer than 30 remain on the planet.

Researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said on Thursday that they first got the calls, which will be moored acoustic recorders will be out in 2010. However, without visual proof, it would be another seven years of documentation for a biologist in order to positively confirm the calls were made from the highly endangered right whale.

“We’re hearing the same songs during a summer survey, conducted in march of 2017, and will be able to find the numbers of the male right whales,” NOAA biologist Jessica Crance said. “We can now definitely say that these are the right whale, which is so exciting because it has not yet been heard before, but in the other right whale populations.”

The biologists dug up by data gathered over a period of eight years, and it was detected in four different tracks in five locations in the Bering Sea, off Alaska’s south-western coast, Crance said.

East of right whales have never been known to call in a repetitive and rhythmic patterns, singing, the NOAA said. To the south and North Atlantic right whales have been documented to make shot calls, upcalls, downcalls, moans, cries and warbles.

Crance, suggesting that the whales may be singing, to a degree, due to their extreme rarity. Unregulated hunting nearly wiped out by the slow-moving mammal, in the early part of the 20th century, and the town has indicated that it “does not show signs of recovery,” the wwf said.

“With only 30 animals, is to find a partner, it must be very difficult. A lonely man, right whales tend to get shot more often than women. Maybe the 2:1 male ratio in the North Pacific has resulted in our males will sing to attract females. However, we may not be able to do that is to test it to know for sure.”

Crance said that the investigators have more work to do, and it will be the study of the evolution of the songs at the time.
