7 Wonders of Nature Finalists Named

Gernmany's Black ForestWonders of Nature

The voting of New 7 Wonders of Nature is coming to the final round. Announced by the New7Wonders Foundation on July 21, 2009, 28 names of the finalist were chosen by panel of experts based on its unique beauty, ecological significance, and historical legacy. (There are 261 landmarks all over the world suggested and it was cut down to 77 nominees by polling in an early stage.)

The finalists includes Amezon Rainforest, Dead Sea, Galapagos, Great Barrier Reef, Halong Bay and Black Forest just to name a few (of course you can see the full list of the finalists in www.new7wonders.com).

You can also vote by internet (simply log in to the website) or phone before the winners will be announced in 2011.

All I hope now is the wonders still be wonders after all these has passed.  Tourism will not harm the nature, will it?
