Disasters and environmental conservation are urgent issues in Indonesia. Studies on aspects and issues of the environment especially during the contemporary period have been produced. Besides the lack of historical insights and the ignorance of folks’ conceptions about disaster and environment, these studies have largely focused on particular element of the environment especially the forests and more importantly on the official or government’s views. This article seeks to explore views, knowledge, and beliefs concerning disasters and environmental conservation among the Javanese and Madurese ethnic groups. The article employs a combination of historical and oral history methods. The historical method is used to trace the roots of their conceptions on disasters and environmental conservation especially the forests based on documentary sources. Oral history method is used to get information stored in human memories by conducting interviews.
