Penguins released in New ZealandRemember the little oil-soaked penguins that were aided last month by volunteers who knit them sweaters?

The first group of rescued penguins to be released back into the wild happily waddled their way down the beach of a New Zealand shoreline this week, to the delight of their caretakers and TV cameras.

The 49 Little Blue Penguins were cleaned up following the oil spill from the cargo ship, Rena, grounded off the coast near Tauranga on October 5. Hundreds more are still in rehabilitation.
