Beluga Whales in Lake Champlain?

Posted by: Katy Elizabeth on November 6th, 2014

During bio acoustic research at the mouth of Otter creek that empties into Lake Champlain, our group Champ Search recorded some interesting data.

Darren Perron from WCAX News Interviewed us on our findings.

Dennis Hall spends much of his time monitoring Lake Champlain.

“Normally there’s no noise. It was different. Different. And so clear,” said Hall.

The Panton man is looking for a legend. He made headlines in 1985 when he claimed to spot the lake creature, known as Champ.

“Something made the noises and it’s totally amazing,” said Hall.

Since then, he’s been chasing Champ trying to record the mythical monster’s every move.

“Not hearing anything like I heard before,” said Hall

And now, Hall has teamed up with Katy Elizabeth, who runs the organization, “Champ Search.”

During recent surveillance, they say they made another surprising discovery.

“I was in total shock,” said Elizabeth.

“I was listening with the hydrophone and all of the sudden I started hearing ‘eekeeekeek,’ like monkey noises and it was strange and then clicking like ‘click, click, click,'” said Elizabeth.

The team used underwater audio testing equipment and claim they documented a rare vocalization used by only a handful of species to find food. None of which should live in a fresh water lake.

“Everything is pointing toward belugas or some other animal, not native to this lake that is in here feeding,” said Hall.

    so its 100% a beluga?

    wonder if ‘champ’ is a beluga thats evolved to live in the lake…

    if whales/dolphins are the only animals to use echo-location… then it really narrows the list of possible animals that champ could be… no?

    I mean there are dolphins that evolved to live in fresh water in brazil in the amazon river… why couldn’t another species?

    But then how could it look like the mansi photo?

    really interested in this…
