Nature group protests Toulouse charity duck race
Environmental activists in Toulouse have called for the cancellation of the “duck race” tombola that involves thousands of plastic ducks being dropped into the Garonne river this Sunday.
Now, a local association, Robins des Bois, believes that the tombola will damage the river and surrounding environment.
In a statement, it said: “This initiative is negative and contradictory. It is inviting people to throw plastic and rubbish into our rivers and waterways.”
The group is asking the local Mairie to cancel the event.
