penguins in sweaters

You read that right, sweaters for penguins are a reality. I know, I know, you're thinking but haven't penguins lived in sub-zero temperatures for a long, long time without the aid of looking fashionable and being warm? It's true they have but there's an added factor for these penguins; the small blue penguins of North Island, New Zealand were coated in oil from one of the worst spills in history for that nation and as a result, the birds cannot preen themselves as the oil is toxic.

The call went out for knitters to please donate some tiny sweaters and the response has been overwhelming. Sweaters are coming in from all over the world. See more penguins in sweaters and read more about this intriguing story here.
