The Quiz: What whale is nicknamed “canary of the sea”?

Sei Whale
Beluga Whales
North Atlantic Right Whales
Gray Whale

Scientists have identified 28 different types of “contact calls,” whistles, and chirps that beluga whales use to communicate in the dark Arctic waters. Early mariners called belugas the canaries of the sea because they could hear them through the wooden hulls of ships. Today’s louder ships interfere with the belugas’ calls, so humans are less likely to hear their natural cries.

The correct answer to this quiz is Beluga Whales.
