Official Logo of PSSN
Welcome to our official site.
We are a non-profit, non-stock, non-partisan organization of professionals, researchers, administrators, policymakers, practitioners, students, and institutions involved in nature studies and related activities. We came from different fields of nature studies - from both social and natural sciences.
We organized ourselves to provide and develop strategies towards wise and sustainable use of nature; ensure a faithful representation of responsible thinking and sentiment regarding issues about nature; establish partnership/collaboration with LGU and NGO; establish local institutional chapters; strengthen camaraderie and cooperation among the members.
Every year, we conduct a national scientific convention
to provide a venue for us to share the results of our scientific endeavors on nature studies, establish research and extension linkages, elect officers and board of trustees members, and invite other individuals to become a member.
Some of our members publish their researches in our scientific journal, the Journal of Nature Studies
, which comes out annually.
We are hoping that you will become one of us in promoting the welfare of our mother nature and our future generation. To become a member, just click here
