Knitter? Like penguins?
Phillip Island’s Penguin Foundation needs you.
The penguin conservation group is putting a call out for people to donate small knitted jumpers for penguins who have been caught in oil spills, or leaks from fishing boats and the like, to wear while they are rehabilitated.
…But wait, stop before you reach for your knitting needles.
That plea for penguin sweaters (in fact, every earlier plea for penguin sweaters) has produced far, far more penguin sweaters than penguins actually need.
For instance, in 2000, the Tasmanian Conservation Trust requested 100 sweaters and received 15,000.
