The present report deals with the parasitic infections detected on examination of fresh faecal samples of 48 mammals and 4 birds at the Zoological Gardens, Dublin during 1978–79. 1,822 faecal samples were received over the two year period and 1,1 of these samples contained helminth eggs. Ninety-five percent of these positive findings were confined to the Carnivore and Herbivore groups with the Primates, Marsupials and Avians showing a low level of intestinal parasites.
