The Australia-based Penguin Foundation has put in a request for knitters from all over the world to make sweaters for penguins that have been caught in oil spills. The pint-sized knits not only keep the penguins warm, but they also prevent the birds from rubbing their beaks against their oil-covered bodies.
Just because you haven’t seen a major oil-spill story in the news lately doesn’t mean animals are completely safe. Lyn Blom of Phillip Island Nature Parks says that even without big spills they regularly find oil-covered penguins who may have been contaminated by something as small as a fisherman “clean[ing] out a container or something while they’re at sea.”
