Plastic Duck Armada!

How cool is this?

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.

Some of the ducks, known as Friendly Floatees, are expected to reach Britain after a journey of nearly 17,000 miles, having crossed the Arctic Ocean frozen into pack ice, bobbed the length of Greenland and been carried down the eastern seaboard of the United States.

All I ever find is jellyfish and dead horseshoe crabs. I want to find me a Friendly Floatee!

And maybe a response from all the message in a bottles I threw out there.
