    The Aussies are justifiably proud of the largest coral reef on earth – the Great Barrier Reef. It can be seen from space and is believed to be the world's biggest single structure made from living organisms. Composed of some 3,000 individual reefs and 900 islands, it stretches for 1,616 miles and is strung out over 133,000 square miles of the Coral Sea in Queensland, north east Australia. Already a World Heritage site, it generates $1bn a year in tourism revenue. A definite in the top seven

    Famed as being the inspiration for Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, the Galapagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed around the equator, 600 miles west of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean. They are famed for their vast number of endemic species and are already a World Heritage Site. Tourism today is strictly controlled on the islands, having risen from just over 41,000 people visiting in 1991 to over 180,000 today. The islands are apparently a favourite haunt of Andrew Marr (which may or may not be a plus point). Darwin would turn in his grave if the islands didn't make the top seven

    The playground of Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, who liked to hunt there, the Grand Canyon was created by the Colorado River over a period of 6 million years. It is 277 miles long, ranges in width from 3.7 to 18 miles and has a depth of more than 1 mile. The area was first inhabited by Native Americans, who built settlements within the canyon and its many caves. A top ten contender if for no other reason than if the United States does not have a contender, most Americans will ignore the competition

    With a temperament similar to that of Italy's soon-to-be-former PM Silvio Berlusconi, Mount Vesuvius is a volcano east of Naples. It is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years, but is best known for its eruption in AD 79 that led to the destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. It has erupted many times since and is today regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. Likely to be the only European wonder in the top seven

    The largest mangrove forest in the world, the Sundarbans, meaning "beautiful forest" in Bengali, has never got the recognition it deserves. A delta at the mouth of the river Ganges, the Sundarbans spread across parts of Bangladesh and West Bengal, India. They feature a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and small islands of salt-tolerant mangrove forests. The area supports a wide range of fauna, the most famous of which is the Royal Bengal tiger. Should be in the top ten if for no other reason than to put it on the map

    Superlatives overflow when it comes to the Amazon rainforest. Despite being cut down at an alarming rate, it still covers 2.7 million square miles. Growing across nine different countries, it represents over half of the planet's remaining rainforests, making it the largest and most biodiverse tropical rainforest in the world. The forest is fed by the Amazon river, the largest river in the world by volume, which also has the biggest drainage basin on the planet. Like the Great Barrier Reef, a must for the top seven

    The lowest point on the surface of the Earth, tourists come from around the world to float in the Dead Sea, a lake lying between the countries of Israel and Jordan. At 418 m (1,371 ft) below sea level, it is almost nine times as salty as the ocean, which makes it impossible for most life to exist in it. However, it is not completely dead – some types of bacteria are able to live in the water. A dead cert for the top seven

    [​IMG]

    The Maldives deserve to be in the top seven because they are among some of the most beautiful but low lying islands in the world. With the sea level rise associated with climate change, they could well not be here in a couple of generation's time. The Maldives are composed of 1,192 small islands with stunning coral reefs strung out like pearls across the Indian Ocean, 435 miles south-west of Sri Lanka. Two hundred of the islands are inhabited and over 90% of the islands' GDP comes from tourism

    Yushan, meaning "Jade Mountain", is a central mountain range in Taiwan. It is also the name of the highest point of the range, 3,952 m above sea level and is part of Yushan National Park, known for its diverse wildlife and ecology. The environment around Yushan ranges from sub-tropical forests at its base to alpine conditions at its peak. Despite the enmity between Taiwan and China, the Chinese have been encouraging their residents to vote for it, so it could easily place in the top seven

    The only natural site on the planet to have a constellation of stars named after it: Mensa (table in Latin). Table Mountain is a South African icon. The flat-topped mountain has withstood six million years of erosion and hosts the richest, yet smallest floral kingdom on earth with over 1,470 plant species. It is the most recognized site in Cape Town and is known as the gateway to Africa, owing to its unique flat-topped peaks that reach 1,086 metres above sea level

    [h=1]Competition for seven wonders of natural world runs into trouble[/h] Organisers of contest to choose seven wonders accused of asking for millions for marketing, despite entry fee of $199

      A four-year long competition to name the seven wonders of the natural world has run into controversy after governments accused the organisers of asking for millions of dollars in marketing costs.
      The New7Wonders of Nature poll, its organisers claim, has attracted millions of voters choosing the final seven from a shortlist of 28 natural landscapes which include the Great Barrier Reef, the Amazonian rainforest and the Maldives.
      Launched in 2007, the project, is the brainchild of Bernard Weber, a Canadian-Swiss marketing expert. From 220 countries 440 images of natural wonders were submitted; these were shortlisted by a panel led by Prof Federico Zaragoza, the former head of Unesco.
      But after initially paying a registration fee of $199 (£125) to enter, each country was then asked to take part in a high-profile global marketing campaign that included a world tour.
      In May, the Maldives government moved to withdraw from the competition after receiving a "surprise" demand for half a million dollars. They were followed in August by the Indonesian government, representing Komodo Island national park, who said the organisers wanted $10m dollars in licensing fees and $47m dollars to host the closing ceremony.
      Todung Mulya Lubis, a lawyer representing the Indonesian tourism ministry, said it was still considering legal action against the foundation. "We want to give them a lesson that as a foundation that attracts worldwide attention, they need to be fair with participants of the competition." However, despite refusing to pay, both countries remained in the competition at the behest of the organisers.
      Gordon Oliver, a former mayor of Cape Town, whose Table Mountain is on the shortlist, told the Cape Times: "What authority does this organisation have to determine a natural wonder as a finalist? It's important that our authorities get the credentials of such organisations who set themselves up as the authority to decide the prominence of natural features."
      The New7Wonders Foundation denied it charged exorbitant fees to use its optional branding. Its spokesman, Eamonn Fitzgerald, said the allegations were baseless, and quoted an article he wrote in Minivan News, a Maldives newspaper.
      He also said: "We hope that we can generate a surplus after this campaign, but all the money from votes goes into running the campaign and maintaining a voting platform for a global competition.
      We do not disclose how many votes have been cast. In our last campaign there were 100m votes and the target for this campaign is one billion votes."
      Fitzgerald said there were varying fees for using the foundation's branding, but he would not disclose figures. "The figures vary by country. As a rule we do not comment on business and commercial aspects, which is standard practice in the business world."
      The environmental campaigner Tony Juniper said the idea was good in theory but charging fees was a bad idea: "The idea of a global participatory process to engage millions of people in thinking through a list of top seven natural wonders of the world, strikes me as a good idea. Charging countries fees to promote marketing is not, especially when they are developing countries and this was not part of the original offer put to them."
      "If the organisers were serious about the potential value of such an exercise for raising awareness and inspiring people, I think they should have secured funding upfront, not stage what to some has evidently seemed like a financial ambush."
      The winners will be announced at 11.11am on Friday, the 11th day of the 11th month in 2011.
      the Top 10 candidates
      not subbed and for print only - will appear in gallery form online

      Amazon
      Superlatives overflow when it comes to the Amazon Rainforest. Despite being cut down at an alarming rate, it still covers seven million square kilometres. Growing across nine different countries, it represents over half of the planet's remaining rainforests making it the largest and most biodiverse tropical rainforest in the world. The forest is fed by the Amazon River, the largest river in the world by volume which also has the biggest drainage basin on the planet. Like the Great Barrier Reef a must in the top seven.
      Table Mountain
      The only natural site on the planet to have a constellation of stars named after - Mensa, meaning "the table." &#8211; Table Mountain is a South African icon. The flat-topped mountain has withstood six million years of erosion and hosts the richest, yet smallest floral kingdom on earth with over 1,470 plant species. It is the most recognized site in Cape Town and is known as the gateway to Africa, owing to its unique flat-topped peaks which reach 1,086 m above sea level. A definite top ten.
      Galapagos Islands
      Famed as being the inspiration for Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection, the Galapagos Islands are an archipelago of volcanic islands distributed around the equator, 965 kilometres west of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean. They are famed for their vast number of endemic species and are already a World Heritage Site. Tourism is today strictly controlled on the islands having risen from just over 41,000 in 1991 to over 180,000 today. A favourite haunt of the BBCs Andrew Marr when not hosting his AM programme, Darwin would turn in his grave if the islands didn't make the top seven.
      Grand Canyon
      The playground of Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, who liked to hunt there, the Grand Canyon was created by the Colorado River over a period of 6 million years. It is 446 km long, ranges in width from 6 to 29 km and attains a depth of more than 1.6 km. During prehistory, the area was inhabited by Native Americans who built settlements within the canyon and its many caves. A top ten contender if for no other reason than if the United States does have a contender, then many Americans will ignore the competition. .
      Mount Vesuvius
      With a temperament like Italy's soon to be former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, Mount Vesuvius is a volcano east of Naples.

At 418 m (1,371 ft) below sea level, it is almost nine times as salty as the ocean which makes it impossible for most life to exist in it. However, it is not completely dead, as some types of bacteria are able to live in the water. A dead cert for the top seven.

The Maldives are composed of 1,192 small islands with stunning coral reefs strung out like pearls across the Indian Ocean, 700 kilometers south-west of Sri Lanka. Two hundred of the islands are inhabited and over 90% of the islands GDP is reliant on tourism.
      Yushan
      Yushan meaning "Jade Mountain" is a central mountain range in Chinese Taipei or Taiwan. It is also the name of the highest point of the range at 3,952 m above sea level and is part of Yushan National Park, known for its diverse wildlife and ecology. The environment around Yushan spans from sub-tropical forests at its base to alpine conditions at its peak. Despite the enmity between Taiwan and the Peoples Republic of China, the Chinese have been encouraging their residents to vote for it so expect people power to easily place it in the top seven.
      A list of the new seven wonders of nature will be officially announced todayon Friday following a global online and phone poll. The competition from a short list of 28 natural wonders of the world is expected to attract votes from millions of people around the world. The poll, organised by the New7Wonders Foundation and its corporate arm, the New Open World Corporation, was launched in 2007 following a similar exercise to find the new seven wonders of the world which the organisers claimed was voted on by over 100 million people.
      The poll is the brainchild of Bernard Weber, a Canadian-Swiss marketing expert and businessman, who wants to create "seven symbols of heritage and nature, to become part of the Global Memory forever". Over 440 natural wonders were submitted from 220 countries in 2007 which was whittled down to 28 finalists in 2009 by a panel of experts led by Professor Federico Zaragoza, the former head of the xUnited Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation. To ensure that the poll is fairer to smaller nations only 10% of the votes from the host country will be counted, the other 90% will be global.
      The vote has been organised to close at exactly 11 minutes past 11 am on the eleventh day of November 2011Greewich Mean Time to maximise the vote and the organisers hope, publicity. The New7Wonders Foundation claims the accolade offers major global promotional and marketing opportunities for the winners. However, the competition has been highly controversial because of the hidden marketing costs which each of the finalists has been asked to pay.
      After initially paying a registration fee of just 199 dollars to enter, each country was then asked to take part in a high profile global marketing campaign included a world tour. As a result in May the Maldives government withdrew from the competition after receiving a 'surprise' demand for half a million dollars. They were followed in August by the Indonesian government, representing Komodo Island National Park, who said the organisers wanted 10 million dollars in licensing fees and 47 million dollars to host the closing ceremony.
      Todung Mulya Lubis, a lawyer representing the Indonesian tourism ministry, said it was still considering legal action against the foundation. "We want to give them a lesson that as a foundation that attracts worldwide attention, they need to be fair with participants of the competition". However, despite refusing to pay, both countries at the behest of the organisers remained in the competition.

    Unafahamu unachokizungumza?
    Umeshawahi kupanda mlima Kilimanjaro,au hata kufuatilia habari zozote zinazohusu mlima huu?
    Na je hivyo vivutio vingine unavyozungumzia umeshawahi kuvitembelea au kufuatilia habari zake?
    Naomba tufahamu kuwa nchi yetu inategemea mlima huu kwa mapato. Na kuna vijana na watu wengi ambao wamepata ajira kutokana na mlima huu. Tuache chuki za kisiasa,na tuanze kujenga taifa letu.

    Watu wengi toka nchi za Ulaya walitaka kuupigia mlima Kilimanjaro lakini wakasita pale walisoma mlima uko Tanzania wakati wanaamini na walishaambiwa na Wakenya kuwa upo Kenya. Tumefanya makosa yale yale tunayofanya kwenye mashindano mengine kama ya michezo. Tunasubiri mpaka dakika za mwisho ndio tunapeleka timu. Imekula kwa Pinda.
