Snotbot and Social Capital

This week's episode of OCTOPOD fills you in on some cool news, like Snot Bot, Australia's pledge for funding to rescue the Great Barrier Reef, and Hawaii's ban on coral-harming sunscreens. Learn more from the OC Overview at www.openchannels.org/news/oc-overview/oc-overview-week-april-30-2018.

We also covered two new MarXiv summaries: one focusing on social capital in fisheries, and the other on tourists' willingness to pay fishers not to fish in an MPA. Learn more about this research at www.marxivinfo.org/summaries.
