New 7 Wonders of Nature

Bernard Webber said, “If we want to save anything, we first need to truly appreciate it.” And to make our appreciation count he has launched a program called New 7 Wonders. Here we get to nominate and vote for the places which we find worthy of our appreciation. By our votes the new 7 wonders of nature will be selected. This is a great chance to give recognition to 7 great natural beauties and take a step forward towards their protection.

This selection process consists of 3 steps. First we get to nominate and vote for our worthy candidates (1 vote, 7 candidates). Then among the top 77 nominees, the "new 7 wonders" panel of experts will select 28 finalists. After that we will again get the chance to vote for our favorites among them. Finally the top voted 7 natural beauties from 7 different categories will be honored as they will be named the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

The first round (primary voting round) is about to end (24 days left). The last date for voting is July 7, 2009. Have you voted for n7w of nature? If not, vote now and take a step towards protecting the environment, protecting what you love. Before I talk about how to vote, please allow me the time to talk about two great natural beauties.

Cox’s Bazaar: world’s longest natural beach

Cox’s Bazzar, situated at the south east part of Bangladesh, is the world’s longest natural beach. It stretches over 155 kilometers. The beauty of the beach can not be described in words. You just have to see it, to believe it. To vote for Cox’s Bazaar choose "Seascape" from “category” or “Asia” from “continent” and select Cox’a Bazaar Beach from the right drop down menu. Its current position is 2nd in its group. (polls closed)

The Sundarbans: world’s largest mangrove forest

The Sundarbans, situated jointly in Bangladesh (south-west part) and India, is the world’s largest mangrove forest. It stretches over 10,000 squire kilometers and acts as a protecting shield against storms, cyclones and hurricane. If this forest wasn’t here then the cyclone Aila would have caused us more devastation. This is the home of the world famous Royal Bengal of Tiger. This forest habitats more than 120 species of commercially important fish, 270 species of birds, 42 species of mammals, 35 reptiles and 8 emphibian species. This forest is also the main income source of millions of people living nearby. To vote for the Sundarbans choose "Forest, National Park" from “category” or “Asia” from “continent” and choose the Sunderbans Forest from the right drop down menu. Its current position is 3rd in its group. (polls closed)

I really hope that you vote for the new 7 wonders (and for Sundarbans). Before voting you will have to register your email id. You can do that in the middle of the voting process too, without ruining your votes. The website will guide you. After voting you will be sent a confirmation email massage. Once you check out the email, your votes will be counted. You can vote multiple times using multiple email IDs. So, what are you waiting for?
