Filters are not generally used when taking wildlife images, the only filter that you would have on your lens, would usually be for protecting the front element, rather than any specific effects to enhance the images.

Other than a clear or UV to protect the front element, the only one I can think of would be possibly a Circular Polariser when taking shots of ducks on lakes, etc, to control reflections from the water - but hopefully one of the wildlife experts will post something more definitive :)
It is difficult to explain to white mice that black cats are lucky...
