Remembering Rena

The Penguin 'Dressing Table'

It is hard to believe that this time 2 years ago we were in the heart of the chaos that was caused when the Rena ran aground off the coast of Tauranga.  From this disaster the Skeinz Penguin Rescue fund was created after a small local campaign to gather some knitted jumpers to aid the penguins caught in the disaster went viral.
Five thousand jumpers & many more dollars later - Skeinz has been delighted to help NZ Forest & Bird with funds to clean up the BOP back it's pristine best & we are now helping penguins here in Hawkes Bay get reestablished back onto Cape Kidnappers.  It was great to have a follow up piece on Sunrise Breakfast Television in Australia (view here) & I have also set up a separate Flickr page of all the penguin related images from the work that has been done.
So if you are looking for a great gift idea for someone special this Christmas - pop over to skeinz.com and grab yourself one of our penguin mascots!
