The New Seven Wonders Of Nature

Almost as soon as they announced the “New Seven Wonders Of The World” in 2007, the folks at the New7Wonders Foundation launched a four year campaign to update the list Seven Wonders Of Nature.

It started with a two year nomination process, from 2007 to 2009, and then a two year voting process. And on Friday, they announced the winners based on five criteria: According to the New7Wonders site, experts’ recommendations were based on five criteria: Unique beauty of the nominated site, Diversity and distribution (accounted for in 7 groups), Ecological significance (in terms of either stand-alone eco-systems and/or their significance for human beings); Historical legacy (relation that human beings and/or indigenous populations have or have had with the site); Geo-location (even distribution of the 28 Official Finalists between all continents)

Flip through and check out the New Seven Wonders of Nature and a few of the finalists that didn’t quite make the cut.
