Default Axolotls on BBC news. Safety or death?

Hi there,

Just saw this on the news. I can't quite understand if the nuns are trying to save the species or are mainly breeding them to use them as an ingredient in a cough syrup? Makes me a bit sick. I researched the cough syrup,and its difficult to find any info in English, but the ingredients include axolotl, huh.Here is the link to the news:

There was an interesting article on radio four about this. The nuns have breed axolotls to make medicine for years, their expertise is going to be used to help keep the axolotl from extinction.
