The photographs reveal the natural world at its most sublime moments but also at its most vulnerable ones.
There's a photo of a curled-up coyote trying to stay warm in a snowdrift in Yellowstone National Park. And there's a shot of an abandoned grocery cart mucking up the Duwamish River in Seattle.
These photographs are part of the Burke Museum's exhibit of the winners of the International Conservation Photography Awards, a biennial juried competition begun in 1997 by local nature photographer Art Wolfe.
More than 75 photos were chosen from more than 1,500 images submitted by amateur and professional photographers from all over the world.
The focus of the photographs is conservation and the winners are chosen in various categories, including wildlife, landscape, underwater and community at risk, a category that emphasizes environmental threats to urban areas.
The exhibit runs through Nov. 25.
The Burke Museum is on the University of Washington campus, at NE 45th St. and 17th Ave. NE. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and until 8 p.m. on first Thursdays.
Admission is $10 general, $8 senior, $7.50 student/youth. Admission is free to children 4 and under, Burke members, UW students, faculty, and staff. Call 206-543-5590 or visit www.burkemuseum.org.
