Komodo among New7Wonders top seven finalists
Komodo National Park finished in the top seven finalists in the New7Wonders campaign, according to a interim tally on the New7Wonders Foundation’s website.
Official voting closed on Friday at around 11 a.m. GMT.
The other interim winners include the Amazon Rainforest in South America, Halong Bay in Vietnam, Iguazu Falls on the border of Brazilian state of Parana and Argentine province of Misiones, Jeju Island in Korea, Puerto Princesa Underground River in the Philippines and Table Mountain in South Africa.
The foundation said that SMS votes submitted in each country were still being tallied and that the results could still change during the verification process.
The foundation announced the seven winners alphabetically, pending a final ranking based on their scores.
The winners will be officially announced at a ceremony in early 2012.
in my opinion:
Like we now that pulau komodo has been finalists on New7Wonders which means that Indonesia can be better known by the world. Pulau komodo as a national park is one of the place where komodo dragon have lived for hundreds years and still descendants of dinosaurs as a habitat. Komodo national park as the 7Wonders which has become a tourist attraction that’s can bring the dragons, the place and Indonesia be better known in the world, so we as a people of Indonesia must be proud of it and preserve of the national park and the dragons. As we know that the dragon is a rare animal, so we must keep the safe form the extinction.
