Penguins Wear Sweaters!
News story originally written on April 12, 2000
Oh no! An oil spill near Australia is causing problems! The penguins that live there are in danger. The oil ruins their insulation, so they might freeze to death!
But never fear, because sweaters are on the way! Organizations are knitting wool sweaters for the penguins to wear. They will protect the birds from the cold and the oil. They even have holes for the penguins' heads and flippers. How cute!
