Penguin Sweaters provide Oil Spill Relief
By Jennifer Diana
Despite their home being in an extremely cold climate, we don’t think of Penguins as needing any help staying warm. Technically they don’t, but when oil spills disturb their habitats these adorable creatures need a new line of defense.
Aside from keeping the penguins warm, sweaters also help prevent poisoning. While they are already soaked, it’s eating the oil in an attempt to cleanse themselves that causes most cases of poisoning. Sweaters are providing a strong barrier.
Not to mention how adorable these penguins look!
