Zurich/Switzerland — “I am so excited that the Bay of Fundy is representing Canada in the New7Wonders of Nature contest,” stated Tupper. “Through this global campaign, so many more people will discover and appreciate the extraordinary natural wonder created by the world’s highest tides. While growing up on Canada’s east coast, I spent my summers exploring the Bay of Fundy and as a child, walking on the ocean floor at low tide was absolutely mesmerizing to me. To be able to explore the beach where only a few hours earlier tides were the height of a 4-story building… now that’s adventure! And because of the Bay’s crazy tides, it’s also the only place in the world where fishermen have to climb a ladder for their daily catch.”
Tupper was called one of 2009’s sexiest stars by the American magazine US Weekly and recently included in the US TV Guide’s list of “Sexiest Men on TV,” is the first Canadian celebrity to endorse the Bay of Fundy.
