Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to determine and to map the forms of environmental change, and also to describe the form of adaptation of women in fishing community related to the environmental change in Administrative Village of Kereng Bangkirai. Administrative Village of Kereng Bangkirai was chosen as the research site since the village is the part of Sabangau National Park conservation area. Therefore, it is important to understand the adaptation strategies that have been done by women in fishing community associated with environmental changes. Twenty informants were selected by using snowball sampling method. The analysis was performed with Miles and Huberman model that consists of data reduction, data display, and data conclusion. In this paper, the environmental change is divided into physical and non-physical aspect. The physical aspect includes the destruction of nature and climate change; while the non-physical aspect consists of economics (the growth of life necessities, modernization and commercialization); legal and institutional field (establishment of Sabangau National Park and improving the status of village); and socio-cultural field (the presence of migrants, changes in the social order as well as social activities that become more active). Adaptation strategies undertaken by women of fishing community include: seek alternative resources and livelihoods; always prepare boats and fishing equipment to use at any time; adjust to modernization; sought to obey the rules and the new institutional system and adapt to the socio-cultural development.
