Rubber Ducky you're so fine...

Curt Ebbesmeyer has been tracking plastic ducks at sea. Dr. Ebbesmeyer, a retired oceanographer, says that anytime now the plastic ducks, and three other plastic species from the same shipment that's already washed up, in part, in Hawaii and Alaska, could turn up in Iceland, Canada or New England.
Today on NPR, Robert Seigel spoke with oceanographer and "flotsamologist" Curtis Ebbesmeyer, who tracks cargo lost off ships. Ebbesmeyer is currently watching a flock of rubber ducks, which has made its way from the Pacific to the North Atlantic. Listen to the story on All Things Considered Audio. Transcript also available ($4.95).
