Our Spotlight Bird This Month: The Blue Jay 

 


TED Radio Hour debuts. Red River Radio will bring the TED Radio Hour to our listeners every Wednesday Night at 7 p.m. In this story, Everything Is Connected. Every species plays a crucial role in our natural world. But when humans tinker with the equation, a chain reaction can cause entire ecosystems to break down. In this hour, TED speakers explain how everything is connected in nature, with some bold ideas about how we can restore the delicate balance and bring disappearing ecosystems back.
