Since 1990, the Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED) conference in Monterey, Calif., has been bringing great thinkers together and new, fascinating ideas to the table.

In 2006, full-length video footage of TED speeches started to pop up online, dazzling and educating viewers, and the talks now reach one billion people worldwide.

This is truly remarkable, especially because many groundbreaking ideas and stories of animals have and are being shared like never before.
