Seattle photographer and Greenpeace freelancer Daniel Beltra recently received Pictures of the Year International's Global Vision Award, plus an Award of Excellence in the Nature Series category for his Greenpeace project, "Rainforest and the Antarctic," which documents the impact of global warming on the biodiverse polar region.

Beltra also took second place in the National Press Photographers Association's Best of Photojournalism 2008 Awards in the Natural Habitat category for his photograph of a grizzly bear mother and cub (published in the Fall 2007 issue of PhotoMedia).

Also, his "Amazon — Forest at Risk" project was one of four selected for support in 2008 from Seattle's Blue Earth Alliance.
