FILE- In this Jan. 18, 2014 photo, an endangered female orca leaps from the water while breaching in Puget Sound west of Seattle, as seen from a federal research vessel that had been tracking the whales. The orca is from the J pod, one of three groups of southern resident killer whales that frequent the inland waters of Washington state. The federal appeals court ruled Friday, July 15, 2016, that the U.S. Navy was wrongly allowed to use sonar in the nation's oceans that could harm whales and other marine life. The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court decision upholding approval granted in 2012 for the Navy to use low-frequency sonar for training, testing and routine operations.(AP Photo/Elaine Thompson, File)

In this photo taken Wednesday, July 13, 2016, a woman walks past a mural outside the future home of the Mexican Museum under construction in San Francisco. Construction of a four-story, state-of-the-art Mexican Museum is underway, realizing the dream of a late Mexican-American artist who four decades ago opened the city's first museum for Latino art in a Mission District storefront. The 60-000 square feet building in downtown San Francisco will be home to 16,000 pre-Columbian, colonial, modern and contemporary works of Mexican, Mexican-American and Latino art, the largest such collection in the country.
