  The Great Penguin Rescue Ap ON J , the iron-ore carrier MV Treasure, en route from Brazil to China, foundered off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa, spilling 1, tons of oil into the ocean and contaminating the habitat of 75, penguins/   The Great Penguin Res Penguins, a Devastating Oil Spill, and the Inspiring Story of the World's Largest Animal Rescue By: Dyan deNapoli.

Despite South African government efforts to protect the penguin colonies and their ocean fish supply, young penguins still struggle to survive. Fuzzy chicks waiting for food in open nests may overheat in the sun or.

Dyan deNapoli (Paperback - pages) is a penguins best friend and her reviting, entertaining and engrossing account of the worlds largest rescue of penguins will surely warm the hearts of penguin lovers the world over.
