The beluga whale isn’t the first animal people think of when they picture creatures that mimic human speech. But for journalist and nature enthusiast Paul English, an above-water song to the aquatic creatures resulted in the auditory experience of a lifetime.
English was out kayaking one day when he spotted a group of beluga whales out in the water.
Hoping to draw them closer for a better look, English decided to sing the creatures a song.
“Beluga! Oh ah said oooh beluga!” he chanted, hoping his silly tunes would make the animals curious enough to drift towards his boat. Sure enough, they started floating his way, and that’s when the real fun began.
