KNITTERS WANTED FOR PENGUIN PULL-OVERS
The Penguin Foundation in Australia has a global callout for knitters to make pullovers for penguins in rehab.
Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.
Knitter Lyn Blom is the receptionist at Phillip Island Nature Parks in Victoria and has knitted many penguin jumpers over the years.
The Penguin Foundation is based at Phillip Island, which is known for having a large penguin colony.
Lyn Blom says it’s not just major oil spills that cause problems for local penguins.
"Fishermen might clean out a container or something while they’re at sea," says Lyn.
"It’s a continuing problem," she says. "We get probably about 20 birds a year."
One advantage of knitting a penguin sweater is that they are small.
"They’re very quick," says Lyn.
The Penguin Foundation also distributes the jumpers to other wildlife rescue centres where needed.
You can download more information about how to knit for penguins, including the knitting pattern and where to send the finished product.
While the Penguin Foundation’s website says it currently has a ‘good supply’ of the little jumpers, the organisation also uses them in educational programs as well as selling them as a fundraising measure.
these are the two most helpful sims 3 reviews on steam
when kai fagerström happened upon an old cottage in rural suomusjärvi, finland, abandoned decades ago, he began to document its new residents.
there were badger cubs born under the floorboards, who now used the fireplace as an entrance. there was a raccoon dog pup who would drop in every night at the same time. there was a pygmy owl who would try to catch the home’s voles. there were red squirrels who had built their dreys inside the house. and there was a fox pup, seen peeking out from a cat door, that had taken up in the dilapidated shed.
"there’s consolation in the idea that nature is reclaiming the places it has lent to people," he says, adding that when enters the house “it’s like stepping back in time. the past lingers in the corners.” it’s not just the animals that interest him, but the people no longer there. “who were they? what was their daily life like?”
to get his shots of these human weary animals, fagerström typically envisions an image first and then plans it out. he’ll set his camera at the perfect angle, throw out peanuts as bait, and wait patiently for wildlife to wander into the picture frame. “sometimes you get lucky, but often it takes all night,” he says. “every so often a shot is pure happenstance.”
Sometimes the world is just too wonderful for adequate words.

Shout out to all the lucky gals that feel nothing when they’re on their periods while I feel like a fully grown dinosaur on a motorbike is trying to pop a wheelie right out of my vagoo.
You know you had a Catholic upbringing when somebody says “May the force be with you” and your instant reaction is to reply with “And also with you”.
Lift up your lightsabers.
We lift them up to the lord.
Let us give thanks to the Force our guide.
It is right to give the Force thanks and praise.
