Quackers: 30,000 Ducks Jump Ship


I'm sure by now you've all heard about the plastic ducks that are taking an extended cruise around the world's oceans since going AWOL off a ship that was heading from Hong Kong to the US. There seems to be a reward out for these "Friendly Floatees", as they are known, the scallywags.

I note also that "for the past 15 years Curtis Ebbesmeyer has been tracking nearly 30,000 plastic bath toys that were released into the Pacific Ocean when a container was washed off a cargo ship".

Curtis, you really need to get out more. This one's for you.
