"The Penguin Foundation at Phillip Island Nature Parks uses knitted jumpers to help save penguins affected by oil pollution. It only takes a tiny amount of oil to kill a tiny penguin; the oil mats feathers and can lead to death from exposure and starvation. Additionally, penguins can be harmed by preening and ingesting the toxic oil.

That’s where the jumpers come in! When oiled penguins are admitted to the park’s clinic, they get a jumper to keep them warm and to stop them from preening.”

"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?""When a wave comes, go deep.""I think I’m going to need an explanation for that one.""There’s three things you can do when life sends a wave at you. You can run from it, but then it’s going to catch up and knock you down. You can also fall back on your ego and try to stand your ground, but then it’s still going to clobber you. Or you can use it as an opportunity to go deep, and transform yourself to match the circumstances. And that’s how you get through the wave.”

Saw this on instagram! Love it.
