CAUSES OF ENDANGERMENT
The Mexican walking fish is endangered because of water pollution and habitat destruction. Also other fish that aren't from that ecosystem are eating the young. The fish doesn't know how to defend itself from the predator fish because they aren't use to living with them. http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/amphibians/axolotl/

Ways to impact issue
Scientist can capture some fish and breed them for years then release them back into the water. They also can help prevent water pollution like make certain laws.
