Saline Feather Burning is when the salt of sea water gets onto the skin of a penguin & goes into holes where the feathers grow & causes a burning sensation when swimming.

Safety factorsEdit

The devastating effects of burning can range from being an annoying sting to a total distraction that would eventually lead the penguin into drowning underwater. But in 1873, a penguin discovered that by bathing in whale oil, he could swim in the salty waters for at least 24 hours, Protector boards were then made in 1901 by an early organization that were coated in whale oil so they had 24 coats, each board would emit an hour's worth of whale oil before it gave off a new coat, which would be good up to 24 hours before it had to be re-oiled.
