Oh My Duck!

"What would happen if the nature turns against us? In the world there is a super predator that hunts wide range of animals species, causing extinction of wildlife, overthrowing ecosystems and food chains, challenging the balance of the planet. It would be nice to have a real cultural, economic and institutional change, that would put a limit on human behaviors!
Oh my duck expresses this deep theme though a light sense of humor."
