FILE - In this Monday Aug. 5, 2002 file photo, the turret of the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor is lifted out of the ocean off the coast of Hatteras, N.C. Diminishing federal dollars have darkened a lab containing the turret and other large pieces, closing to the public a window on the nation’s maritime history and delaying possibly by decades their public display. The museum has seen a steady decline in annual funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration amid budget cuts and shifting federal priorities. (AP Photo/Steve Helber, File)

In this Friday, Jan. 24, 2014 photo provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) some of the of 25 dead pilot whales that were found on shore near Marco Island, Fla., are shown. The whales were found two days after eight other pilot whales died near Lover's Key State Park, about 40 miles north.
