The latter part of the 20th century saw the evolution of modern environmental ethics philosophy. Environmental issues gained prominence due to issues such as resource scarcity, population growth, and environmental deterioration. But it also presented some difficulties for determining environmental ethics in the modern world. The main obstacles in creating environmental ethics were the disparities across societies, countries, and regions; the fundamental right to get the resources needed for a daily existence; the right to access resources, etc. Divergent opinions on environmental ethics have resulted from this.

The purpose of the research is to ascertain the level of environmental ethics, the attitudes of students towards protecting the environment, and the relationship between the two. The study employed "descriptive research" to examine the gender-related differences in Mizoram undergrad students' environmental ethics and attitudes towards protecting the environment. 450 male and 450 female students, out of the total 900 participants in the study, made up the final sample. The study's goals were analyzed using statistical techniques such as Mean, Standard Deviation, and t-test, and the results were interpreted in a meaningful way. According to the survey, the majority of undergraduates had high environmental ethics and an average attitude towards environmental conservation; however, female undergraduates had higher environmental ethics and attitude towards environmental protection compared to the male under-graduate students. Environmental ethics and undergrad students' attitudes towards environmental protection were shown to be substantially correlated in Mizoram, suggesting that a student with strong environmental ethics would likewise have higher environmental attitudes.
