Seven Wonders of Nature | November,11 2011

The Amazon and Iguazu Falls: two of the new Seven Wonders of Nature.

The Amazon and Iguazu Falls: two of the new Seven Wonders of Nature.

The result of the first count of the global poll to elect the New Seven Wonders of the Natural World was announced earlier today and South America's very own Amazon and Iguazu Falls made the cut among with the Halong Bay, Jeju Island, Komodo, Puerto Princesa Underground River, and South Africa's Table Mountain.

On July 7th 2007 the citadel of Machu Picchu was elected one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. This distinction added to the mysticism of Peru's sacred site, and resulted in an increase of backpackers making their way to the site. Today, on November 11th 2011, as announced on the New7Wonders website, it is the turn of the Amazon forest to be justifiably highlighted as one of this world's top natural wonders, and thus making Peru home to two World Wonders. It should be noted that the Amazon rain forest covers the basin of the Amazon River in the central and northern regions of South America. The tropical forest and its biodiversity spans parts of 8 countries, having the largest areas in Peru and Brazil, followed by Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guyana, Venezuela, Suriname and French Guiana.

Joining the Amazon in its new title of the world's great natural wonders is the Iguazu Falls. The Iguazu Falls are situated on the border of Argentina and Brazil not far from Paraguay; meaning Brazil also now has 2 noted natural wonders along with Peru. The falls are the result of the Iguazu River toppling over a 2.7 kilometer ledge with numerous islands creating 275 individual waterfalls that lead to the climax where three water faces fall into the same spot, known as the Devil's Throat. 

The actual results released today are provisional and in accordance with the first count of votes since voting concluded at 11:11 GMT this morning. The final results will now be investigated, verified and independently validated. As soon as the voting process is concluded, in early 2012, New7Wonders will prepare the Official Inauguration celebrations at each site. It is possible that one or more of the provisional winners released today may not be validated throughout the confirmation process, and the New7Wonders will publish an update if this is the case. Here at the Green Toad Bus we think that the Amazon and the Iguazu Falls are pretty safe bets!
