The Lost Ping

Where's it coming from?
The area where the sound, also referred to as a “ping,” has been occurring is the Fury and Hecla Strait, some 75 miles northwest of Igloolik, an Inuit hamlet. According to CBC News, locals from Igloolik noted that “there was less marine wildlife in the area than usual.” That’s putting it lightly. Paul Quassa, a member of the area’s legislative assembly, was quoted as saying, “That’s one of the major hunting areas in the summer and winter because it’s a polynya,” or an area where open waters are surrounded by ice abundant with sea mammals. This past summer, however, “there were hardly any. And this became a suspicious thing.”
Something is calling, but should we answer?
