It's very cute, but these penguin outfits have a serious purpose.  Knitters in New Zealand are helping protect penguins from the damaging effects of the New Zealand oil spill.

Oily birds are dressed in jumpers, until the oil is cleaned off - so they don't eat the oil while trying to clean their own feathers.

It may be the result of an environmental disaster - but these little guys look very stylish in their new outfits!
