This study examined the effectiveness of radio-based instruction in enhancing students' knowledge of Bicol's unique and natural resources across different educational levels. The research encompasses elementary, junior high school (JHS), and senior high school (SHS) students, evaluating their pretest and posttest scores in response to radio programs on various environmental topics. The radio intervention significantly improved knowledge levels among elementary students, particularly in the tilapia topic, showcasing a 70.31% gain. For JHS students, notable progress was observed, with a remarkable 123.08% gain in invertebrates. SHS students also exhibited enhanced knowledge, achieving a 50.85% gain, emphasizing the positive impact of radio-based instruction on environmental education. While acknowledging contextual challenges and evolving technology trends, this study underscores the vital role of radio in fostering environmental awareness and positive conservation behaviors among students in the Bicol Region. The results suggest that radio programs are potent tools for promoting environmental education and empowering students to contribute actively to conservation efforts.
