We are Eco Dfndrs

Nic Gillespie, at Eco Dfndrs summer camp

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

I run, ski, act, and play the tenor sax. I have acted for most of my life and love getting into someone else’s shoes. I love nature, and try to save the environment because we only get one world, and apparently it’s difficult for some people to see that. I especially care about deforestation, as it’s such a pointless, but expensive toll on the planet.

Date without water

In the future, water is scarce. You save the water you need for only the most important things. How does this affect young people trying to go on a date? A humorous look at a potentially frightening problem.

Old Growth

Alarming facts about the lack of old growth forest in the world and the effect of losing this precious resource.

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.

Apply for camp

We stand for world peace.

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.
