Major sociological aspects of the valorization of nature “as such” and as a representative of “a public good” with an emphasis on the need to respect major values and attributes that exist without human intervention are given in this paper. Use value and non-use value of nature are presented as two major features of the nature as a public good and “as such” and major ways of endangering of nature are discussed in the continuation of the paper. Also, the distinction between “social” and “sociological” analysis of the consequences of endangering of nature are discussed and the need to run a complex impact environmental study is stressed. Moreover, different ways of endangering of nature and its values are discussed and some solutions are offered how to engage in more efficient ways against the exploitation of nature “as such” as well as a representative of a public good. An example of sociological analysis – social assessment of the Neretva Delta Area is given.
