New7Wonders of Nature is a contemporary effort to create a list of seven natural wonders chosen by people through a global poll. It is being led by Canadian-Swiss Bernard Weber and organized by the New7Wonders Foundation , a Swiss-based, government-controlled foundation, after its success in organizing the New Seven Wonders of the World, which were chosen by more than 100 million votes in the first-ever global campaign.

Stages of the campaign

The Official New7Wonders of Nature campaign started in 2007, immediately after the campaign to elect the man-made Official New Seven Wonders of the World, in which more than 100 million votes were cast. From over 440 participants representing over 220 countries and through a national qualification and race to become one of the Top 77, as well as the Panel of Experts recommendation of the list of 28 Official Finalist Candidates under the leadership of Prof. Federico Mayor, the Official New7Wonders of Nature is now in its third and final phase in which the wonders themselves will be chosen by the people. Voting will continue throughout 2010 and into 2011. During this time, the New7Wonders World Tour will visit each of the Finalists to allow them to present themselves to the voters across the globe. The Official Declaration of the New7Wonders of Nature will be in 2011.
