The "Clownfish Bracelet" represents the symbiotic relationship we all should have with the Ocean.
Of the nearly 30 species of clownfish, there are two types commonly referred to as the orange clownfish (Amphiprion percula and A. ocellaris). The percula clownfish is distinguished by its vivid orange color with distinctive white bands outlined in black.
This family of fish is also known as anemonefish because of the symbiotic relationship they have with sea anemones. The clownfish brings food to the anemone in exchange for protection. By building up a protective mucous coating, the clownfish is immune to the stinging cells of the anemone. The clownfish makes its home within the anemone’s tentacles, enjoying protection from predators; in return, the anemone gets to eat the leftovers from the clownfish’s meals and the clownfish helps keep the anemone clean.
Humans could learn a thing or two from the clownfish about how to have a symbiotic relationship with the Ocean!
