Junk Art Club: The Climate Change Project – Fish Sticks
August 2020

Ikea bed slats thrown out in the trash were cut and used as the canvas to paint four fish that are threatened by rising ocean temperatures. Scientists have found ocean fish species are very vulnerable to climate change because they may already be living near the edge of their thermal tolerance and cooler waters may not be accessible to them. The cardinalfish, damselfish, clownfish and rainbow-colored candy darter fish are threatened as a result of climate change.

Club members Catie Guire, Camille Benedict and Jackson Sanders painted the fish sticks.

“I hope that people will learn that climate change really is a problem and will learn about how many different species are in danger!” – Catie Guire
