The female Adelie penguin recently experienced feather-loss, which can happen to penguins in their natural habitats. As a result of her feather-loss, the bird had a hard time regulating her body temperature. SeaWorld’s aviculture team set out to assist her and created a special wetsuit to mimic her former coat of feathers.
What is causing the bird to loose all it feathers? Making it dress like a cartoon character and be subjected to endless camera flashes will surly help this stressed out bird.
They need to invent a killer whale proof wetsuit to protect their workers
The California Academy of Sciences did the same thing several years ago for one of their penguins, and I think they have a children's book on the subject.
