|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!
