Unfortunately, the Great Barrier Reef isn't the only thing that needs to be saved. Clownfish, which were famously featured in Finding Nemo, are also in danger of dying out. After the film, everyone wanted to buy their own tiny orange fi sh with white markings. However, there was only a small supply of clownfi sh on the market. So, many pet stores hired people to catch the fish directly from the ocean. As a result, their numbers dropped and wild clownfish are now at risk of becoming extinct.

令人遺憾地,需要被拯救的不只有大堡礁。《海底總動員》的片中要角 —— 小丑魚 —— 也面臨著絕種的危機。這部電影上映後,大家都想要購買自己專屬的白條紋橘色小魚。然而,市面上可供應的小丑魚數量稀少。因此,許多寵物店便派員直接從海裡捕捉小丑魚。牠們的數量因此減少了,現在野生的小丑魚正瀕臨絕種。
