A limited edition print run of photographer Daniel Beltrá’s book ‘Rainforests: Lifebelt for an Endangered Planet’ has been presented to world leaders at the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen as part of the Prince’s Rainforest Project that was founded by Prince Charles.

The 500-book print run was the result of a commission that Beltrá won earlier this year from the Prince’s Rainforest Project to photograph the deforestation that’s taking place in the Brazilian Amazon, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Indonesia. Prince Charles said: “Photographic images can tell a compelling story about the truth of the situation. If we lose the battle against tropical deforestation, we lose the battle against climate change.”

To complete the project in just eight months Beltrá spent one month in each of the locations and shot over 40,000 images - as well as using some of his Greenpeace archive images from the Amazon and Indonesia - that have now been edited down to just 100 pictures that feature in the exclusive publication.

Beltrá explained: “Tropical deforestation is responsible for 20% of the Co2 emissions worldwide so if we stop tropical deforestation that’s a great way to control global warming. There is still 80% of the rainforest standing and it’s gorgeous.”

The book being presented to world leaders at the Climate Change Conference comes just a few weeks after ABC News in the USA named Daniel Beltrá as its ‘Person of the Week’ in recognition of the impact that his photographic work has had in highlighting major conservation issues around the world. Beltrá stated: “Right now we’re just trashing our planet and I want people to be aware of what's happening and do something.”

In a 20-year career thus far Daniel Beltrá has become best known for his nature and conservation photographs - many commissioned by Greenpeace - that are often aerial landscapes shot from helicopters to show the impact that man’s actions have had on the environment.
