The research result from multiple regression analysis found that environmental attitude, locus of control, and future-orientation and self-control were able to predict environmental conservation behaviors at 34.6 percent and at .01 level of significance. Environmental attitude (β=.312) was able to predict environmental conservation behaviors the most. The second predictor was future-orientation and self-control (β=.200). The third predictor was locus of control (β=.197).
