The purpose of the study was to find out preservice science teachers' (PSTs) pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) about sustainable development. Data collected qualitatively via individual interviews applied to three female PSTs who are in their senior year at the undergraduate level of Elementary Science Education. Results revealed that PSTs had lack of knowledge about sustainable development, objectives of SD and its place in the science curricula. Moreover PSTs did not have enough information about students' understanding of SD. However PSTs had promising insights about instructional strategies and evaluation and assessment methods.
