Adorable Penguins Need Sweaters, Too

Awww.

Apparently folks in New Zealand have been knitting sweaters for the penguins swimming in toxic waters in the wake of the Taurunga oil spill. The sweaters prevent the little guys from preening oil off their feathers (and then ingesting it, which can be fatal) until workers can clean them off. So if your knitting skills are advanced enough to bind off stitches for flipper holes, now would be the time to put them to use. [Grist via Gawker]
