Three people who believe Virginia’s coastal areas are vulnerable to rising sea levels want our elected leaders to do something about it. A scientist at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, the executive director of Wetlands Watch, and the director of the Virginia Sea Grant program have outlined their goals for the Weldon Cooper Center at UVA.
