We are Eco Dfndrs

Hi, I’m Sophie. I’m an Eco Dfndr.

I divide my time between Hornby Island and Comox, BC. I attend the Fine Arts E-cademy and Mark Isfeld Secondary School. I like playing the guitar, painting and dancing. I was happy to have the opportunity to learn more about environmental issues locally and globally as an Eco-DFNDR. After learning more about microplastics and plastic vortexes in the ocean, my family and I are working harder to reduce our plastic usage.

This Place We Live

At camp, I got to help my friend Kalena make this music video for her original song that explores her feelings on the state of the environment.

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.
