We loved this heartwarming story of Alfred Date, the oldest man in Australia (109 years old at the time) who knit tiny sweaters for injured penguins.
Alfred Date has actually been knitting since the mid 1930s. When the Penguin Foundation on Phillip Island asked for volunteers to make sweaters for rare little penguins in 2013, Alfred joined in.
Penguins have struggled to survive in waters polluted by oil. These little penguin sweaters have helped keep them warm and safe!
Alfred is also super active - having playing golf way into his ‘90s!
