This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

"Penguins are very vocal birds and really, really noisy when we stepped through the doors and into the building it was eerily silent."

Dyan deNapoli tells a riveting personal tale of the world's largest volunteer animal rescue that saved over 40,000 penguins after an oil spill off the coast of South Africa. She dispels the belief that all oiled birds should be euthanized and proves that each one of us really can make a difference.
