The New 7 Wonders of Nature – 2012

November 14, 2011 by

New 7 Wonders of Nature
The Seven Wonders of the World has historically been a listing of seven sites known to theĀ Ancient Greeks as the most notable locales in their known world.
Since then, many have developed lists of the “modern” Seven Wonders of the World one of which is the Geneva-based New7Wonders foundation that launched the project four years ago, when it originally received 440 contenders from 220 countries. Experts then made a short-list of 28 finalists.

World citizens were then invited to vote by telephone, text message and online for the 28 finalists, which included the Dead Sea, Mount Kilimanjaro, the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reef and the Black Forest.

Here are the new 7 Wonders of Nature:

amazon rainforest

The Amazon rainforest

Vietnam’s Halong Bay

Puerto Princesa underground river in the Philippines

The Iguazu Falls in South America

The Jeju Island in South Korea

The Komodo national park in Indonesia

Table Mountain in South Africa
