AXOLOTL The Axolotl is famous and beloved, a celebrity among amphibians. Named after an Aztec god and the inspiration for a Pokemon, it can heal itself better than Wolverine from the X-Men, even regrowing lost limbs. In nature, the Axolotl is in peril. It is native only to Lake Xochimilco, a UNESCO World Heritage site outside Mexico City. In 2006, the species was declared critically endangered due to habitat degradation and the pervasiveness of invasive fish in the lake. In 2009, experts estimated that the axolotl population had fallen 90 percent in the past four years, a decline further exacerbated by urbanization. In 2015, scientists briefly believed that the critter might have gone fully extinctin the wild—only to find one a few weeks later. This little guy its been in danger for a long while now and needs our support to survive. If this project gets funded, We will be able to donate 100% of all profits produced from the decks of cards that remain after the campaign. Donations will be focused on different conservation efforts projects that will help restore the axolotl, like donating to Units for Environmental Management (better known as UMAs in México) which are special spaces dedicated to the breeding of axolotls and Various projectsdedicated to restore the natural environment of the Axolotl in Xochimilco.
