Last week members from many of the U.S. Senate’s coastal states formed a bipartisan Oceans Caucus. Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski is one of its co-leaders.
She said one of the reasons the caucus was formed was because humans don’t know what we should about the oceans.
She said the topics the caucus will address will be varied and wide-ranging.
Her colleague Senator Mark Begich of Alaska is also a member of the caucus. Murkowski says she expects more coastal senators to join.
