A 109-Year-Old Man Spends His Last Years Weaving Coats To Save Penguins

Alfred Date, who long ago learned to knit, spent his final years demonstrating that we can always do something to assist people who are in need.

At the time, he had no idea that this hobby would grow into his major passion and have a profoundly good effect on other penguins.

Sweet grandfather put forth a lot of effort with the Knits by Nature initiative. Volunteers there knit lovely garments to shield penguins from the effects of oil spills.

The ecology and all marine life in Australia are in grave risk as a result of these horrific events.

“A spill impacted 438 young penguins in 2001. Thankfully, 96 percent of them were rescued, and the sweaters had a significant impact, according to Lauren Barker, a Foundation staffer.

As if this weren’t bad enough, the situation becomes even worse when penguins attempt to clean their feathers with the use of their beaks and wind up consuming the poison, which is lethal.

“People notify us through letter that they wish to join. According to Jaquelina Alves-Ferreria, the Foundation’s manager, “We provide them the pattern, they knit the sweaters, and then they send them done.

I’ve never been able to refuse anything. In an interview, Alfred stated, “I have always wanted to do whatever it takes to help others.
