About This Item

Friendly Floatee

In 1992 sloeg een container met 28.000 plastic badeendjes overboord van een containerschip dat onderweg was van Hong Kong naar de Verenigde Staten. Sinds die legendarische dag, dobbert de kolonie gele eenden de halve wereld rond. Sommigen zijn aangespoeld op de kust van Hawaï, Alaska, Zuid-Amerika, Australië en de Pacific Northwest, anderen zijn gevonden bevroren in Arctische ijs. Weer anderen hebben een of andere manier hun weg weten te vinden tot in Schotland en Newfoundland, in de Atlantische Oceaan. De eendjes hebben bijgedragen aan ons begrip van oceaanstromingen, alsmede onze kennis over plastic vervuiling in oceanen.

Op kleine schaal wordt dit nagedaan en op 6 juni 2020 vertrekken er veel eendjes van het badeendjes Community Celebration Event in Delft. De eendjes zijn te volgen op:  http://badeendjes.reijsbergen.nu/ 

Zelf ben ik in Delft geboren en een deel van mijn voorouders komt al eeuwen uit Delft. Heel erg leuk om hier vandaag een TB los te laten!!

In 1992, a container with 28.000 plastic rubber ducks fell overboard from a container ship en route from Hong Kong to the United States. Since that legendary day, the colony of yellow ducks have been floating around half the world. Some are washed ashore on the coast of Hawaii, Alaska, South America, Australia and the Pacific Northwest, others are found frozen in Arctic ice. Still others have somehow managed to find their way to Scotland and Newfoundland, in the Atlantic Ocean.The ducks have contributed to our understanding of ocean currents, as well as our knowledge about plastic pollution in oceans.
This is done on a small scale and on June 6, 2020 many ducks leave from the rubber duck Community Celebration Event in Delft. The ducklings can be followed on:  http://badeendjes.reijsbergen.nu/


I was born in Delft and my ancestors were here for ages. To me it is very special to be in Delft again today and start the travel of this TB here!

Grab It (Not from a Cache) 10/13/2023 GitteT grabbed it   Visit Log

I really do apologize the late grabbing of this TB. Had in my hands for a couple of months but never got round to also post the log online.

As I have a thing with Ducks, this kind of TB has a habit of travelling with me for a while before moving on. And they will be travelling in very good Company.
