We are Eco Dfndrs

Ella McMechan Eco-Dfndr summer camp

Hi, I’m Ella. I’m an Eco Dfndr.

I love to act, sing, write songs and play the ukulele. I play it often but very rarely get to record any songs or make a video to them. Being at this camp has given me my first opportunity to do that. In my spare time I love to paint, draw, write, swim and make tons of short films by myself and with friends. I loved coming to this camp and hope to come again next year.

Be One With the Fish

A dramatic comedy about how a group of friends learn about the shocking consequences of ingesting micro plastics. No Mermaids were harmed in the making of this movie.

We make that change

"Talking about Change doesn’t make it happen.” So sing a group of Dfndrs wandering the farmlands of Denman Island. “The Earth is weakening, we have to keep on trying. We can make that Change.”

Everyday Miracles are Happening

"The earth has given us our home, it's given us our lives. We can’t take this Earth for granted, please have mercy on our planet. Let’s start today!” This beautiful song of encouragement and hope was written and performed by Dfndrs Ella and Kalena.

Now what?

You can be a DFNDR!

Environmental activists aged 12–15 are invited to apply for a one week all expenses paid Environmental Action Camp on Denman Island, BC. Spend a week creating compelling media – music, drama, documentary, and dance – all with a focus on defending the environment.
