The finding showed that Supportive Environmental Ethics (SuE), and Environmental Education (EE) were able to explain the variation of endogenous factors of Inspiration of Public Mind (IPM) to cause Environmental and Natural Resources Conservation Behaviors (Beh) with 94.00 percent. IPM had the most effect to Beh with 0.99 and subsequences were EE and SuE with effects of 0.44 and 0.35. All exogenous variables were able to explain the variation of IPM with 77.00 percent.
