Ghana's initiative to monitor and report marine plastic pollution using data generated by the public represents a milestone in citizen science.
The new low-noise prototype can pick up plastic without disturbing its natural surroundings.
We're already used to seeing bales of corn waste in our fields, but could they soon become a familiar sight on the ocean floor?
With the ocean plastic pandemic getting worse, innovative solutions from across the spectrum are needed.
