This morning I read the news mentioned KOMODO has been chosen as a winner of the new Seven Wonders of the World. YAY!!! Thank you for all thousands and thousands of people around the world who have been involved in voting in this initiative launched by the New7Wonders Foundation by on-line, phone and text messages.
Almost everyone has heard of the Komodo dragon, but not everyone knows it comes from this small volcanic island in Indonesia. In fact the Komodo National Park includes three larger islands of the Pacific Ring of Fire – Komodo, Rinca and Padar – as well as numerous smaller ones, making up a total land area of 603 square kilometres. The full area is three times that and many of the protected animals are marine species.
Chosen from a short list of twenty-eight, the provisional winners include two sites in South America – the Amazon and Iguazu Falls – and five other natural spectacles in Asia and Africa: Halong Bay (Vietnam), Komodo (Indonesia), Jeju Island (South Korea), Table Mountain ( South Africa) and the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River (Philippines).
Below I attached a video of Bernard Weber, Founder-President of New7Wonders, announcing the names of the provisional New7Wonders of Nature at New7Wonders headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland and other two videos of Official Declaration of the New7Wonders of the World part 1 and 2.
