Wildlife are commonly presented to veterinarians for a variety of injuries. During convalescence, it is important to provide an environment that reduces stress and ensures the good health of the patient. The purpose of this study is to review how lighting can impact the health of captive wildlife by reviewing ultraviolet B radiation exposure, photoperiod, and other lighting needs of these animals.
