Let me guess, you stumbled on this site looking for relevant information about vacation spots in the Philippines. Or maybe you followed a link. Or maybe…well, whatever the reason why you’re here, there’s something helpful that you could do to promote the wonders of the Philippines. It’s so simple — since you have an internet access (otherwise, you won’t be reading this post), just vote for the Philippine wonder as nominee for the New 7 Wonder of Nature.
According to the FAQ, only one national nominee per country will be allowed to proceed: the highest ranked in the voting on 31 December 2008. The top Philippine choice is Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, which means that the following are no longer included:
Tubbataha Reef (No. 3, previously No. 8 in May 2008)
Chocolate Hills (No. 5, previously No. 9 in May 2008)
Mayon Volcano (No. 11)
Hundred Islands National Park (No. 44)
Mount Pinatubo (No. 47)
There will be a new round of voting until July 7, 2009. Then the New7Wonders of Nature Panel of Experts will review the top 77 nominees and choose the 21 finalists, to be announced on 21 July 2009. Voting will then commence for the 21 New7Wonders of Nature Finalists throughout 2010 and into 2011. The final declaration will be in 2011. (See full text of the rules below.)
