New 7 Wonders of Nature

new7wondersnature.jpgThe New7Wonders Foundation, which is behind the The New 7 Wonders of the World (which was announced during the Official Declaration ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal on Saturday, July 7, 2007), is now in search for the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Contrary to the 7 Wonders of the World, this one's about "natural" development meaning it's not man-made like the Taj Mahal or the Great Wall. It's about 100% unadulterated, unalienable, unalterable, pure nature goodness. Guess what? 2 Philippine tourist spots are currently making their mark in the Top 10. Here's the current ranking according to a global poll:
