This reminds me of the story of a consignment of plastic ducks, which ended up being distributed over much of the world.

The story sounds funny, but is just one example of man made objects polluting the ocean. smiley - smiley

I wonder if there should be 1-2 more general sentences about pollution of the ocean through plastic/lost cargo?

You beat me to this one. smiley - roflsmiley - applause I saw a discussion on Twitter over the weekend. I'd never seen a Garfield telephone before, thank Zarquon.

I wonder if we could manage to get a photo? They're really quite horrible to look upon.

I agree with Tav, maybe a tiny bit more about pollution and ocean currents?

Thanks for reading everyone smiley - biggrin

I updated the introduction and added a couple of headers so I hope that's better smiley - ok

It would be good if we could get a photo - 'Garfield telephone' sounds cute, and indeed it can be, but 'Garfield telephone that has spent 30 years in water' is 'really quite horrible to look upon' indeed!
