    The Norwegian government is facing pressure from scientists and environmentalists worldwide to halt a first-of-its-kind, U.S.-funded study on the Minke whales off Norway’s coast.

    Researchers plan to trap a dozen of the whales to conduct hearing tests, in order to determine their sensitivity to man-made sound.

    Critics say the study isn’t worth the safety and human risks for both humans and the whales.
