Abundance and relative abundance of dung beetle role as a bioindicator of forest and habitat damage. The purpose of the study was to analyze the abundance of species and the relative abundance of dung beetle species in the Integrated Conservation Forest of Lampung University in the Protected Block, Tahura Wan Abdul Rachman on December 2018-February 2019. The method used was the trap method, then the collected data were analyzed by abundance index and relative abundance index. The results showed that the abundance of dung beetle was moderate with a value of 3.53 which described the condition of the Forest of Education in Tahura Wan Abdul Rachman was still relatively good. There are four types of dung beetle found, consist of Catharsius molossus, Onthophagus sp, Aphodius marginellus and Oryctes rinocheros. The relative abundance is high with values above 20% because the number of each type of dung beetle found is almost the same. Managers should preserve forests by preventing illegal logging. Keywords: Dung beetle, Scarabaeidae, Abundance, Relative Abundance.
