This is so fabulous! Shared from Books + Publishing. Congratulations to Denise Franklin, runner-up in the Phillip Island Penguin Foundation's jumper knitting competition for her Penguin Classic ‘On the Beach’ design.

This is adorable. Also went to their webite and saw all they did. Had no idea that knitted jumpers could be used for oil damaged birds. Hurrah to them!

I actually found conflicting info on whether or not the sweaters were used, but it's a good thought. I know at the California Academy of Sciences, one of the penguins has a wetsuit that helped him get over a severe case of molting (and not growing new feathers).
