The Penguin Foundation on Phillip Island in Victoria saves the lives of penguins - by putting them in jumpers. When penguins are caught in oil spills, their feathers become matted, making it hard for them to stay warm or hunt for food.Until they can be cleaned, the jumpers help to keep the penguins warm and also stops them from ingesting oil in attempts to clean their feathers with their beaks.
