Ranger Rick article

I found this in the March 2009 Ranger Rick magazine.

Whale Whisperer
Visitors to a marine park near Tokyo, Japan, are eagerly crowding around a "talking" whale. The whale, named Nack, is a beluga living at the park. A scientist trained him to make three different calls or "words" for three different objects. A brief high-pitched tone means "swim fin." A longer high-pitched sound means "goggles," and a short low-pitched call is "bucket." Now Nack's trainer hopes to teach him and other whales to tell him such things as when they're hungry or their backs are itchy.

This is obviously talking about one of the belugas at Kamogawa. I just wonder if it's spelled Knack or Nack.
