EKTEK activists insist on their right to survive,

their right to quality of life and their right to liberty.

Who will save the animals?

They will.

Or die trying.

How far can they go?

How can they improve their conflict resolution skills?

Animals around the world recognise they are endangered, threatened and may not survive beyond the walls of zoos. Working together, they create an organisation called EKTEK to help other endangered animals.

EKTEK is a blend of ecology and technology created by animal activists to provide international support to threatened creatures.

In Last chance to eat, EKTEK attempts to rescue endangered animals destined for the gourmet table. They do not succeed and EKTEK’s philosophy of peaceful activism is rocked.

In Out of spite, out of mind, the pressures of confinement have given the animals another kind of way out. Some animals have found their own personal escape from the gaols that surround them – mentally.

But other animals believe in a more forceful way out – animals should kill other creatures if they invade their territory – and that includes humans. Finish them before they finish us.

Some think it need not be wasteful death; they could easily eat the bodies.

The peace symbol is based on the footprint of a bird – this one marked by blood and ignited as a fuse

In Kill the pandas, the animals with war on their mind over-run the peacemakers.

Kill the pandas is a plea for empathy for our fellow creatures on this planet. How is it that humans, one species alone among millions, have the power to destroy our home many times over and can choose to select the creatures (not just beast or plant but the very DNA) they think worthy to survive? When did humans rise so far above their animal station?

Humans have changed the course of evolution. Now, it’s time for the animals to do their own choosing.

Does Kill the pandas mean survival of the meanest?
