The 28 finalists for the Natural Wonders

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)

  1. 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

Asia: 3
South America: 1
Central America: 1
North America: 1
Europe: 1

  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.

  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.

My Predictions

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:

In America:

  • Amazonas
  • The Grand Canyon

In Europe:

  • Black Forest

In Asia:

  • Halong Bay
  • Port Princess

In Oceania:

  • Coral Barrier

In Africa:

  •   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.
