Is this a real need or a hoax? I am satisfied that it is real. Read below.
Several people contacted me to warn that this may not be a legitimate cause so I contacted the foundation directly. Here is a letter that I received in reply. This looks legitimate to me but of course one should always use careful judgement in deciding how to spend time and money.

Hi Kathryn,
Thanks so much for contacting us to confirm the details. Please know that we do not urgently require little penguin jumpers for rehabilitation, we have a good supply of these which can be used on any rescued oiled penguins and in the event of an oil spill. These jumpers are also sent to other wildlife rescue centres if required. If you are interested, we do encourage and greatly appreciate participation in our Knits for Nature program and we accept all donations (wool and acrylic) at any time, each are put to good use in a way that supports little penguin conservation on Phillip Island. Our knitters really enjoy participating in the program with many saying its great way to pass knitting skills onto new generations! Below are further details:

The Penguin Foundation accepts all donated jumpers, pure wool or acrylic, and each are put to a beneficial use that helps the little penguins:

• Rehabilitation - we have a good stockpile of jumpers suitable for rehabilitation purposes which we use on any rescued oiled penguins and in the event of an oil spill, these jumpers are also sent to other wildlife rescue centres if required.

• Education and Awareness - we use excess and jumpers unsuitable for rehabilitation purposes as engaging educational tools to teach students and others about the devastating effects marine and coastal pollution has on marine wildlife and the environment.

• Fundraising – excess jumpers or those unsuitable for rehabilitation also help us to raise further funds for little penguin research and conservation projects as well as supporting the Wildlife Clinic. These jumpers are placed on a plush penguin toy and sold at the Penguin Parade retail store, and also on our Adopt-a-Penguin Pal kids’ pack. http://www.penguinfoundation.org.au/about-the-penguin-foundation/wildlife-rehabilitation/

Hope this clarifies and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.
Kind regards,
Danene
