From a table put by a pond with ducks in San Diego Zoo: Please do not throw coins in the pond!

Your wish for luck is very dangerous for the ducks. Ducks and other birds will swallow coins (even the largest c25 = quarters); when they do they become very sick and can even die. So, feel free to make a wish, but please keep your coins.

I 100% agree and I didn't see any coins on the bottom of the pond!!!
