Help us save the Axolotls!
In the Deep Blue SMP, we know our beloved mascot Rory is an axolotl.
But did you know that the species are going extinct?
A lot of factors have contributed to the sharp decline in axolotl numbers in recent years, like water pollution, overfishing, habitat loss and invasive species. With a very real threat of axolotls becoming extinct, there’s been a renewed effort in recent years to safeguard their numbers.
Did you know?
- These unusual salamanders are among the most studied freshwater creatures in the world!
