First Funds Distributed!

L-R: Neil from Forest & Bird, Brendan from Skeinz, Tamsin from Cape Sanctuary

We have been very excited this week to have distributed the first funds raised by the Skeinz Penguin Rescue Fund.  Three thousand dollars was divided between Forest & Bird who will use the money towards the BOP Shorebird clean up fund - helping the penguins that had their homes destroyed by the Rena spill & Tamsin Ward-Smith from Cape Sanctuary, who overseas a Little Blue Penguin burrowing programme, helping LBP get re-established around Hawkes Bay coastline.

We are still working on our fundraising efforts & Flip, our very popular LBP mascot which has the authentic penguin call is now back in stock.  So if you are stuck for a gift for a friend or family member - give them a Skeinz Penguin mascot & continue to keep helping the penguins!
