Current Goal

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 halfway around the world. Some are washed up 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 duck has been specially created for The Bathing Duck Community Celebration Event in 2020 ( During the event, many bath ducks were sent into geocache waters to see how TB currents flow around the world, just like the rubber ducks that hit a container ship in 1992 and were found everywhere.

Look for a new cache for this duck to make him drift farther and farther from home like his other friends.On you can track this duck and all of the other ducks that have been released during the event, (thanks to DeFret).


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.

Deze eend is speciaal voor het Het badeendjes Community Celebration Event in 2020 ( in het leven geroepen. Tijdens het event zijn er vele bad eendjes de geocache wateren op gestuurd om te kunnen zien hoe de TB stromingen over de wereld lopen net als de badeendjes die in 1992 van een containerschip sloegen en overal gevonden werden.

Zoek voor deze eend weer een nieuwe cache om hem verder en verder van huis te laten drijven net als zijn andere vrienden. Via kun je deze en de andere eendjes volgen die zijn vrijgelaten op het event (met dank aan DeFret).
