As recently as the late 1990s, wild axolotls were fairly numerous: a 1998 study estimated that there were as many as 6,000 axolotls per square kilometer in their native habitat. However, due to pollution, habitat loss, and predators, there may be only a few hundred left in the wild. Immediate action must be taken if wild axolotls are to be saved. Conservationists say that comprehensive ecosystem management is needed to ensure that axolotls survive in the wild. Better sewage treatment and containment measures could reduce pollution, and aggressive fishing of invasive carp and tilapia could reduce the axolotl’s predators. Although these strategies may not be simple to implement, they are necessary to prevent extinction. Sign this petition to urge the Mexican Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources to prevent axolotls from becoming extinct in the wild.
