    ABSTRACT: The paper proves that the ecological and legal culture is an integral part of the generic category “ecological culture» which reveals only partly relationship between society and nature that falls under the rules of international and national law. Another no less important distinguishing feature of the category “ecological and legal culture” is that it assumes the presence not only of knowledge about the state of nature or its internal interrelations, but also of skills through legal means to protect nature from negative anthropogenic influence. In the context of the emergence of new environmental threats of the 21st century (climate change, ozone holes, impact on the nature of bio- and nanotechnologies), it is necessary to form in public a new system of values, knowledge and practical skills for legal (including judicial) environmental protection by citizens of Russia, which will require the correction of education, training and upbringing programs.
