Zurich/Switzerland: As voting to choose the New7Wonders of Nature enters its final week, a snapshot of the top 10 Finalists reveals some fascinating choices by the global voting community.
In alphabetical order *, the top 10 Finalists at the moment are: the Dead Sea, the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reef, Halong Bay, Jeita Grotto, Jeju Island, Komodo Island, Puerto Princesa Underground River, Sundarbans and Vesuvius.
Revealing the current top 10, Eamonn Fitzgerald, Head of Communication for New7Wonders, said: “In our first campaign for the man-made wonders of the world, many changes took place in the final week and days so the top 10 we have announced today will certainly change. With millions of votes still set to come in, Finalists who are not in today’s top 10 could yet make it into the chosen 7.”
Commenting on the top 10, Bernard Weber, President and Founder of New7Wonders said: “Clearly Asian Finalists are strong at this stage, reflecting the way the world is evolving east, and at the same time I know the actual top 7 will change in the coming days. We remain excited and intrigued to see who will emerge as the provisional New7Wonders of Nature on 11/11/11.”
The first count indicating the provisional voting result will be announced at 7:07 p.m. GMT on Friday, 11 November 2011 on new7wonders.com.
