Goal: 45,000 Progress: 33,252

If you've seen the 2003 Disney movie Finding Nemo, you may have a new-found love of the clownfish. With global warming affecting the clownfish habitat, it's hard to ignore the danger these adorable creatures are facing right now.

As overall surface temperatures rise due to carbon emissions caused by humans, ocean waters acidify and in turn deplete coral reefs. Because clownfish rely on coral reefs for their survival, a decline in reef populations would mean the same for the clownfish.

Though the clownfish isn't endangered right now, that possibility isn't far off if global warming continues at the current rate.

In order to ward off further habitat destruction we need to preemptively protect the clownfish by placing it on the Endangered Species List. With this move, both government and conservation agencies will be able to draft and implement life-saving measures for clownfish.

Dear Daniel M. Ashe, Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service:

The clownfish is a beloved, adorable little fish that swims in tropical waters and calls the coral reef its home — and it was perhaps made even more popular by the 2003 Disney movie Finding Nemo. It's no secret that this little guy, with his colorful orange and black markings, captures the attention of people all over the world.

But the clownfish is in danger. As greenhouse gas emissions on the part of human activity are only increasing, our oceans are acidifying. When waters become more acidic, the reefs' growth slows and in turn, the clownfish suffers from loss of habitat and food source.

We need to intervene before the clownfish becomes severely affected by the loss of its precious coral reefs. This means not only doing all we can to reduce global warming, but also placing the clownfish on the Endangered Species List so that conservation agencies and the government have the tools they need to begin protecting this species with fervor.

Please use your power as Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to make sure the clownfish does not reach endangered levels!
