Family of Earth

Pictured are a very few of the Wildlife species that call Remington Woods their Home. Remington Woods is large enough in it’s entirety to support diverse species. That is one reason to preserve the entirety of the woods, cutting it up would destroy biodiversity, depriving many animals of their home, lives and future generations.

There are over 70 species of birds as well as mammals, fish and herptiles, that have been seen in the Woods. It is permanent residence to many and a stopover on migration for some. For all it is home and without it they have no way to live.

Wildlife populations are plummeting globally, all Wildlife is in peril. Below is a list of the living Forest Community of Remington Woods. We need the woods to be a safe refuge, for wildlife and an oasis for us.

A pair of eagles, bonded for life, search and find the forest. They choose a quiet, undisturbed place by water. A tall strong tree capable of hosting their heavy nest lives there and supports their new home and brood.  Salamanders waiting all year, for that day when cold turns to warmth and rains become vernal pools, there they can meet, and their children can grow. Doe finds secluded bushes to safely hide her fawns, before she goes to forage.

We all have so much in common. We all need food,  safety, a place, to see that our young have what they need, enjoy companionship.  Each being of the forest community has a story, needs a place to live their life and take their part in the miraculous, interdependent, diversity of life on the planet, that we are part of. The life that is now threatened by not valuing Nature. Preserving Remington Woods means preserving life, our life, wildlife, and the life of the planet.
