Mobil One was the only penguin taken to the Oropi Native Bird Sanctuary, covered in oil after last month’s oil spill.

She treated about 400 penguins during the Rena oil spill and said it was lucky to have only one penguin treated in the recent spill.  He was called Mobil One because she was expecting more penguin and planned to name them successively.  “Thank goodness we didn’t get a Mobil Two,” she laughed.  Mobil One is halfway towards being fully waterproof again and would be ready to be released in another two weeks, she said.  He’s a really strong swimmer, and he won’t take long.”
