This study focused on the assessment of the Senior High School students of their environmental awareness and effects of globalization on nature conservation. The descriptive method of research was used as the design of the study. The 82 respondents from Grades 11 and 12 were selected using random sampling technique. The respondents were asked to answer the questionnaire to bring out information on their environmental awareness. Statistical tools used were frequency count, percentage technique, weighted mean, and Chi-square. Findings of the study revealed that significant association does exist between the respondents’ place of residency and level of awareness on nature conservation and the effects of globalization on nature conservation. The proposed action plan of the researchers was an informative magazine that would raise students’ environmental awareness on nature conservation toward sustainable development. The contents of the magazine were based on the results of the study focusing on the main effects of globalization.
