The environmental preservation movement arises as a result of envi- ronmental damage that occurs everywhere, so it is important to preserve the envi- ronment for the sustainability of all living things on the earth. This environmental conservation movement is represented in the Sundanese short stories Akibat Nuar Tangkal Papaduan by Kasturi and also Kang Sobri Ngusep Lauk di Walungan by Mamat Samista. The two carpons (short story) represent the destruction of nature in Tatar Sunda as well as the environmental conservation movement through the characters of Aki and Kang Sobri. This study aims to describe the environmen- tal conservation movement for environmental damage as described in the two carpons. The researchers used a literary ecocritical approach. The results of this study indicate that the conservation movement represented in the Akibat Nuar Tangkal Papaduan carpon is the preservation of flora in the form of a conservation movement forbidding illegal logging and reforestation. While, the environmental conservation movement represented in the Kang Sobri Ngusep Lauk di Walungan carpon is fauna conservation in the form of a movement to avoid overfishing, and use the environmentally friendly fishing gear. This research proves that humans have an important role in preserving the natural environment because humans and nature have a symbiotic mutualism.
