PIN: Penguins In Need

Here's some info on a
human-penguin-it-arian effort to help penguin victims of the New Zealand's recent oil spill.


'A recent oil spill on New Zealand’s coast has left the environment and wildlife in shambles — including the local blue penguin population. While volunteers are working hard to rescue and clean the animals in the region, they require a little bit of crafty help: tiny sweaters, or penguin pajamas, for the rescued birds. These woolen sweaters keep oil-soaked birds warm until they’re well enough to be cleaned and prevent them from ingesting oil from their feathers.'


Check it out. You know what you gotta do.
