Penguins In Sweaters


Helaine emailed me yesterday.  She’d seen a story on TV then found it online.  It concerns penguins in New Zealand.

An oil spill has coated the penguins. When they preen they ingest the oil.  Bad.

In order to keep the ‘guins safe people worldwide have been knitting sweaters.

Best photos ever!

  1. I don’t understand…with the sweaters on, don’t the penguins get too hot? Can’t the penguins be bathed to remove the oil and the spill cleaned up? Seems ridiculous to put clothes on animals…
