Why Make an Adoption?

Many of the world’s most iconic creatures rely on the ocean for their habitat and food - but our oceans are in trouble, and we need your help to save them. Adopting a sea creature is the perfect gift for friends and family, and supports Oceana’s critical work protecting the oceans and the endangered animals that call them home.

Adopt a Clownfish

One of the ocean’s biggest celebrities, clownfish are hard not to like, with their distinctive bright orange and white markings.  Clownfish live in warm-water coral reefs such as the Great Barrier Reef, and they make their homes in anemones.  Clownfish are immune to the anemone's lethal sting, and in exchange for safety, clownfish drive away intruders and clean the anemone, removing parasites.

How Your Adoption Helps Protect Clownfish: Clownfish and other marine creatures are susceptible to changes in the ocean as a result of climate change and ocean acidification. Oceana works to protect marine animals such as clownfish from harm by curbing climate change and ocean acidification and campaigning for clean, safe energy solutions. All donations go towards making our world's oceans healthier and safer, for generations to come.
