Bay Of Fundy Wonders Of The World

A global competition has named its "provisional" New 7 Wonders of Nature, but no Canadian sites have made the list.


The New 7 Wonders of Nature are:


- South America's Amazon rainforest.


- Vietnam's Halong Bay.


- Argentina's Iguazu Falls.


- South Korea's Jeju Island.


- Indonesia's Komodo national park.


- The Philippines' Puerto Princesa Underground River.


- South Africa's Table Mountain.


New Seven Wonder of Nature organizers said it's possible there will be changes between the provisional winners and the eventually confirmed winners after voting is verified. A final announcement will be made in early 2012.


The Bay of Fundy — located between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick — was the only Canadian finalist on the first short list of 28.


But the home of the highest tides in the world didn't make the top 14 finalists in a global competition that featured frenzied lobbying and online voting.


The new seven wonders initiative is the brainchild of Swiss-Canadian adventurer and filmmaker Bernard Weber.


The competition attracted the attention of Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter, who said winning would have turned the bay into a tourism gold mine.
