Hard on the heels of a global vote that named the New Seven Wonders Of The World, organizers have announced a similar worldwide poll to select the New Seven Wonders Of Nature.
The nomination and voting process, which will culminate in the summer of 2010, is outlined at www.new7wonders.com. To be eligible for voting, every nominated location has to have an official supporting committee.
“Nominations must be for a clearly defined natural site or natural monument that was not created or significantly altered by humans for aesthetic reasons,” the website states. “Physical or natural phenomena like the northern lights, the gulf stream or shooting stars are not eligible.”
