A crowd of 777 people gathered on the Saint John waterfront in New Brunswick yesterday to form a giant human 7 to encourage Canadians to vote for the Bay of Fundy in the New7Wonders of Nature competition.

“The New7Wonders of Nature competition celebrates the most incredible, awe-inspiring natural wonders on this planet. It’s very fitting that we were able to visit the Bay of Fundy near Canada Day to celebrate the fact it is among the 28 finalists,” Bernard Weber, Founder and President of the New7Wonders Foundation told the crowd. “That tells you how significant this region is on a global scale. The world’s highest tides are truly an amazing natural phenomenon. Canadians should be very proud.”

“The Government of Canada is proud to be a part of the initiative to make the Bay of Fundy one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature,” said the Honourable Rob Moore, MP for Fundy-Royal, on behalf of the Honourable Bernard Valcourt, Minister of State for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and La Francophonie. “We encourage all Canadians to vote for the Bay of Fundy which will increase the profile of one of our natural wonders and showcase Canada as an exciting, international tourism destination.”

The human 7 is part of a national campaign by Bay of Fundy Tourism to boost awareness and generate national pride for Bay of Fundy as a means to encourage voting and ensure Canada’s entry reaches the top seven in the New7Wonders of Nature competition.

Canadians can support the Bay of Fundy’s campaign to become one of the New7Wonders of Nature by voting for the Bay of Fundy online for free at www.votemyfundy.com. They can also vote using mobile phones by texting FUNDY to 77077 ($0.25 per text vote).
