Alfreda- Machi no Penguin
Picture story in Japanese 32 Alfreda belongs to a fairy penguin colony established in the rocky breakwater at St. Kilda Beach, a Melbourne suburb on Port Phillip Bay. One day a break in the pipeline carrying oil from multinational tankers to a nearby refinery pollutes the bay, and Alfreda and her mates are soon coated in death-dealing oil. The combined efforts of many rescuers save the lives of some of the endangered birds, but will there be a next time? The story is based on an actual oil leak in Port Phillip in 1989, foreshadowing the much greater catastrophe of the Oil Baron off the Tasmanian coast in 1995. Picture book format, ages 6 - 12.
