In one way or another, Daniel Shaw has spent the last 30 years exploring New Mexico's landscapes, watersheds, and wildlife with young people. For the past 19 years he and his students at Albuquerque's Bosque School have conducted long-term research on the Rio Grande's riverside forest. They pay particular attention to animals on the margins -- those squeezed by habitat loss and fragmentation, creatures living in urban landscapes, and endangered species. His students' work includes projects such as measuring hydrocarbons along the Rio Grande, mapping all beaver activity within a county, and determining if the imperiled rabbit-like pika of the Jemez Mountains survived recent catastrophic wildfires. Helping students become stewards of their home watersheds and citizen scientists in a time of global weirding is his life's work.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
