Explore Oil Spill, Knit Sweaters, and more!

In the midst of the oil spill in New Zealand, people are donated knitted sweaters for freshly cleaned blue penguins so they don't preen themselves ingesting the oil - very cute and smart way to protect these little ones!

In New Zealand, knitters are helping penguins soaked in oil from a shipwreck. Sweaters are keeping the penguins warm & preventing them from ingesting the petroleum. I'm going to move to New Zealand and knit sweaters for penguins.

Until the penguins are able to be cleaned, they are giving these knitted fibers a new use. Aside from keeping the penguins warm, sweaters also help prevent poisoning.  While they are already soaked, they eat the oil in an attempt to cleanse themselves that causes most cases of poisoning.  Sweaters are providing a strong barrier.
