Endangered Clown Fish
By: Bailey Peel and Alexis Weddle
Clown fish are endangered because with the coral reefs dying slowly over time, soon the clown fish will become homeless. Some estimate that more than half of the world’s coral reefs will disappear in the next 20 years. The Clown fish are most famous in Disney’s “Finding Nemo” . Clown fish are the most watched species under watch by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature).Clown fish are native to warmer waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans, including the Great Barrier Reef and the Red Sea. Clown fish live at the bottom of shallow seas in sheltered reefs or in shallow lagoons. There are no clown fish in the Atlantic ocean.
