A whale trying to make human contact

Is this a hoax? We just listened to an audio recording and it sounded like a guy who forgot the lyrics and is just going all ‘doo doo doo doo’ his way in a sing-song kind of way — except that it wasn’t a guy, but a Beluga whale in captivity at National Marine Mammal Foundation (sadly though, the recording was done a number of years back, and NOC passed away five years ago). And because whales typically produce sounds via their nasal tract instead of the larynx like people do, it seems to suggest that, as the foundation’s president Sam Ridgway says, ‘motivation for contact.’ Simply, wow.
