Our home is in danger.

We are losing our friends

‘Zoox’ (algae). Zoox give us

our food and color.

SCIENCE FACTS

Did you know?

Pollution is

caused by humans.

Zoox die because of

pollution, and warmer

waters. My friends

and I look pale or

‘bleach’ when

Zoox die.

Greenhouse gases

in the ocean make

them warmer.

Zoox are algae

called zooxanthellae.

Zoox are our tiny friends that

live in Polly, the polyp.
