These Superhero Fish Lizards Need Our Help!

Do you know what axolotls are? They're fishy lizards with cute little faces.
They have big eyes. And their smiles are funny!
你知道什麼是住在水裡的蠑螈嗎? 他們有一些像蜥蜴,長得很可愛,有著大大的眼睛。

Some say axolotls are "water monsters"! Why?! It's because they stay in the
water all the time. Axolotls have superhero superpowers. When they lose an
arm or tail, they can grow it back!
有人說牠們是「水怪」!
因為牠們都待在水裡,還有再生能力。手臂或是尾巴斷掉了,可以再長回來。

One kind of axolotl lives in waterways in Mexico City. Sadly, the waterways
are dirty from icky, yucky pollution. The pollution makes axolotls sick.
There are fewer and fewer axolotls.
有一種水棲蠑螈住在墨西哥市的水道裡面,但是這些水道遭到汙染,讓這種蠑螈越來越少。

Scientists are trying to help these axolotls. They say people can help too!
But how?
科學家想要幫助這些小動物,他們說大家也可以來幫忙,那怎麼幫呢?

The scientists say people can "adopt" the axolotls. When people adopt a pet,
they take it home. But people don't take these axolotls home!
科學家說大家可以「領養」蠑螈,但不是真的要帶牠們回家。

People give the scientists a little money. This helps the scientists take
care of the axolotls. They give the axolotls food. And they keep the
axolotls' home safe!
科學家希望大眾捐錢,讓科學家有資源照顧蠑螈,也可以保護蠑螈的棲息地。

The scientists tell people about their axolotl online. That way, people know
how their axolotl is doing!
科學家會在網頁上告訴大家,他們收養的小傢伙狀況如何、在做什麼。
