Episode Summary

EDIT
The Great Penguin Rescue
AIRED:
Dyan deNapoli speaks about the Treasure oil spill that occurred on June 23, 2000--a cargo ship that sank off the coast of South Africa, spilling 1,300 tons of oil and putting 75,000 African penguins at risk. Some 12,500 inexperienced volunteers descended upon Cape Town to help save the imperiled birds. Dyan DeNapoli, at the time a senior penguin aquarist at the Aquarium, was one of 100 penguin experts who helped supervise the volunteers during the rescue effort. After three months of grueling labor, 95 percent of the affected penguins were successfully released back into the wild in what has been heralded as the largest and most successful rescue of animals ever undertaken. DeNapoli tells this story in The Great Penguin Rescue: 40,000 Penguins, A Devastating Oil Spill and the Inspiring Story of the World's Largest Animal Rescue.moreless
