Vote for the Seven Wonders of Nature

The Swiss-based nonprofit foundation that held the voting for the 7 Man Made Wonders have now started the voting process for the New 7 Wonders of Nature. There are 261 “national and multinational” nominees competing to make it to the top 77 spots. Votes can be cast until July 7th here
(You do have to register since they don’t want people voting twice).

A panel of judges will decide on the 21 finalists in July. The public will then choose the final seven winners via Internet, phone and text messages. The voting will last until 2011.

For those of you who are curious about the winners of the 7 Man Made Wonders, they were:

Pyramids of Giza (Egypt)
Colosseum (Italy)
Great Wall of China
Taj Mahal (India)
Petra (Jordan)
Christ the Redeemer Statue (Brazil)
Machu Picchu (Peru)
Pyramid at Chichen Itza (Mexico)

Yes, I do know there are 8 places on that list! :)

If you have a favorite place you would like to see get nominated, get voting!!
