    Penguin sweaters, also known as penguin jumpers, are sweaters which are knitted for penguins that have been caught in oil slicks. When an oil spill affects penguins, they are dressed in knitted sweaters to stop them preening their feathers and to keep them warm, since the spilled oil destroys their natural oils.

    These sweaters were knitted in mass production by hand for all the animals affected by the 2011 new zealand oil spill!!!! ..amazing

    OMG this is the cutest and sadest thing! The Penguin Jumper Project was started as the result of an oil spill in '00 off the southern tip of Australia threatening the lives of 'Fairy' Penguins, the smallest breed of penguins measuring 30cm tall. 15,000 tiny jumpers (sweaters) were donated from knitters around the world, improving survival to 98%. #Penguin #Sweater
