When the descriptive statistics of the data, independent samples T-test and one-way analysis of variance anova results were examined, it was determined that there was no significant difference in the attitudes of sports sciences faculty students towards echo recreation according to gender, the department they studied, daily leisure time and frequency of going to natural areas. In addition, it was concluded that there is a significant difference in the level of university students' attitudes towards eco-recreation according to the variable of participation in eco-recreational activities. According to the duration of participation in eco-recreational activities, it was determined that the attitude averages of the students who participated for 5 years or more differed significantly compared to the averages of the students whose participation period was less than 1 year.

Considering the current ecology and environmental protection problems, it is important to develop positive attitudes towards eco-recreation in terms of protecting natural resources.
