Whale

FILE - In a Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013 file photo, dozens of pilot whales are stranded in shallow water in a remote area of Florida's Everglades National Park. Wildlife officials are ceasing efforts to rescue a pod of whales that was stranded in the Everglades after losing sight of the marine mammals. The National Park Service says aerial and boat survey teams could not locate the whales Saturday, Dec. 7, a potentially encouraging sign that they have moved farther offshore. While authorities are hopeful the whales are headed back to the deeper, colder waters that form their natural habitat, they cannot say for sure. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky, File)
