We are Eco Dfndrs

Ember Pettersen at Eco-Dfndr summer camp

Hi, I'm Ember. I'm an Eco-Dfndr.

I play piano and bass and I think of myself as a very creative and artistic person, with classical painting being one of my great joys in life. For my future plans I hope to become a 3D or CGI animator. And love to bug my Friend MacKenzie Rae.

Micro Plastics

Looking forty years into our future, fishing isn’t what it used to be. In fact, it’s a nightmare. A group of Dfndrs collaborated on this cautionary tale of the effects of mircro plastics in our Oceans.


We’ve all seen countless infomercials in our time, but nothing like this! Yes, you too can own an easy peasy lemon squeezy three-step guilty lifestyle. And that’s not all!


Using multiple pairs of scissors to represent environmental destruction, Dfndr Tomio reminds us of the Fragility of Nature.

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.

We are Eco Dfndrs. We create, share and collaborate on ideas to get our message out. We don’t just say we care for our environment, we do more. We make films to open people’s eyes, start conversations and inspire action.
