After a massive oil spill that injured hundreds of Little Penguins - a species only found in southern Australia and New Zealand - Phillip Island's Penguin Foundation asked 109 year-old Alfred "Alfie" Date if he could knit little sweaters for them.
The removable sweaters help prevent the injured penguins from trying to remove the sludge themselves and swallowing the toxic oil. This is not a fashion statement.
But settle down knitters, the foundation shared on Facebook:
"Please know we have plenty of jumpers for the penguins and do not need any more. We greatly appreciate everyone's efforts, including gorgeous Alfie."
