Penguins in sweaters--for a good cause

Penguins in sweaters

Yes. Those are penguins in sweaters. And no, they are not being abused.

The penguins were caught in a New Zealand oil spill. The sweaters serve the dual purpose of keeping them warm until they are well enough for the oil to be removed from their feathers, while also preventing them from nibbling at the oil. I doubt anyone expected them to be so cute. (You can read about it here.)
