There have been already announced the 28 competitors for the finals competition for the 7 natural wonders. For several post we have followed up on this issue. Reviewing this I’ve noticed that is not so little that this topic entertained me, I would well have created a category because this is already my 12th post on the subject:
1. Vote for the 7 natural wonders
In this post in January 2008 I launched my 7 favorites in the Spanish-speaking countries; from these it only survive the Salto del Angel. (1 of 7)
- How is going the vote for the 7 natural wonders, January 2008
A month later I made a proposition as statistics growth the ones that survive are: El Salto del Angel, Grand Canyon, Galapagos and Iguazu. (4 of 7)
3. The 7 natural wonders that continue rising
4. Which are the 7 wonders that will win
On this date I talked about the probable distribution of wonders if a chance would be given by continent
South America: 1
Central America: 1
North America: 1
- Population: a disadvantage in the 7 natural wonders
In this post I spoke of possibilities with the population by continent with Internet access.
Asia would have 4, 3 Europe, North America (excluding Mexico) would have 2 and Latin America 1.
- 7 natural wonders What’s the heck with it?
7. 7 wonders, almost everything returns to normal
Here I suggested 21 possible finalists, with 3 candidates for each continent. Between them I stuck on 7.
- What’s up with the 7 wonders
9. And finally, what natural wonders remain?
10. They’re the 77 nominated Natural Wonders
11. 7 Wonders, the battle of the 77
Just to refresh, let’s remember how is the selection process, right now we’re in the final stage.
|All nominees||The short list||The finalists|
|This process began in 2007 with 440 participations in 220 countries.||Then were selected 77 candidates who had the most votes and also received the necessary documentation from their countries||At this stage we are, a couple of days ago it was made the announcement that have been selected the 28 finalists, from which will remain 7.|
The 28 finalists
|1. Amazon Forest
2. Angel Falls
3. Fundy Bay
4. El Yunque
5. Galapagos Islands
6. The Grand Canyon
7. Iguazú Falls
Brasil / Argentine
|8. Black Forest
9. Moher Cliffs
10. Masurian Lake
12. Mud Volcanoes
Switzerland / Italy
|14. Bu Tinah Shoals Archipelago
15. Dead Sea
16. Halong Bay
17. Jeita Grotto
Israel, Palestine, Jordan
India / Bangladesh
|23. The great coral barrier
|Papua New Guinea and Australia
28. Table Mountain
A pity, but there is no sufficient quota; we could hardly expect 2 positions in America. By now it had great success they had candidates that we thought can’t arrived so far, although it also gives us some pain for those who stayed behind, this is my prediction:
- The Grand Canyon
- Black Forest
- Halong Bay
- Port Princess
- Coral Barrier
- Kilimanjaro (if it achieves enough votes)
The new panel’s vote has now been improved; you should select the candidates by clicking the green button.
