Garonne Duck race gets clean-up
You may recall the article we ran earlier this week about the 10,000 plastic ducks being released into the Garonne river to raise money for the Fondation Toulouse Cancer Sante.
We did wonder about the suitability of plastic ducks in the water.
However, we have received some good news from readers Andy & Joni in Faugeres.
"Downstream, floating pontoon lines will be stretched across the full width of the river. Canoeists will be stationed along the river to reach any ducks which leave the main flow and a funnel at the finish line will allow the ducks to be safely recovered.
A series of nets are also planned at the end."
So, panic over as no plastic ducks will end up at sea!
