Environmental degradation has been identified caused by human lifestyles, indicated by human behavior. That was why this research was aimed at finding out information about verifying a confirmative model which consisted of students’ citizenship behavior toward environment (CBE) affected by instructional leadership (IL), naturalistic intelligence (NI), and mediated by environmental ethic (EE). A causal survey used, and 132 senior high school students selected as sample. Four instruments developed for measuring IL (reliability/rel. was .882), NI (rel. .686), EE (rel. .600) and CBE (rel. .612). Data analyzed by multiple regression and correlation, and path analysis. The research results showed that environmental morale/ethic was proved to be good mediated factor between students NI which indirectly affect significantly on students CBE. Base on the result IL was significant directly effect on students CBE and NI was not significant directly effect on students CBE, therefore, it could be concluded that if one of the efforts in trying to save our the only one planet, in empowering students’ citizenship behavior toward environment, students environmental ethic which closely related to morale, might be taken into account when the role of teachers in term of their leadership and students naturalistic intelligence could be not neglected at the instructional process in environmental education at any schools.
