Penguins released back to the wild in Argentina

The wildlife response teams working in Patagonia released the first 30 penguins washed of oil today.

“It was very emotional for volunteers and all other groups involved. About 50 or so should be ready on Saturday, said Jay Holcomb, IBRRC’s Executive Director. “There are about 190 penguins left so we are beginning to see the end.”

More than 400 birds including penguins, grebes, cormorants and steamer ducks have been treated at the makeshift oiled bird rehabilitation center along the Patagonia coast in southern Argentina.

A spill occurred on December 27, 2007 at a oil tanker loading facility. An unknown amount of oil spilled over a four kilometer area. The team is still seeing slicks of oil come ashore.

    I’m very glad that you wrote this blog. I think that people need to pay more attention to animals that aren’t around them geographically. I live in the midwest and the only “penguin spotting” I get to see is at the zoo.

    Thanks for posting this information. I am studying to be an elementary school teacher and I plan on having a penguin unit. It is encouraging to see people posting blogs about such a topic!
