Sipadan Island, Malaysia – Get involved to nominate.

Sipadan is the only oceanic island in Malaysia, rising 600 m from the seabed. It is in the Celebes Sea, east of the town of Tawau and off the coast of eastern Sabah. It was formed by living corals growing on top of an extinct volcanic cone, and took thousands of years to develop. It is located at the heart of the Indo-Pacific basin, the centre of one of the richest marine habitats in the world. More than 3,000 species of fish and hundreds of coral species have been classified in this ecosystem.
Sipadan Island, ranked 17 at the moment under the category of Group B (Islands), is among the 261 qualified national and multinational nominees competing to make it to the top 77 Official New7Wonders of Nature by category groups. View the New7Wonders:Live Ranking
The Official New 7 Wonders of the World, as announced in random order at the Official Declaration Ceremony on 07.07.07, are: The Great Wall of China, Petra, Chichén Itzá , the Statue of Christ Redeemer, the Colosseum, Machu Picchu and the Taj Mahal. More than 100 million votes were cast worldwide. The New 7 Wonders are all equal – there is no rank among the list.
The New7Wonders campaign is choosing the New7Wonders of Nature and YOUR VOTE is precious to be counted in order to push our Sipadan Island to the Top 77. These Wonders know no borders, like those that we humans often draw in our heads. So everyone—every single person—can and should participate.
The New7Wonders of Nature campaign encourages people of all ages, from kids to their grandparents, to look around the natural world with new eyes.
Voting for the whole pool of nominees will continue through July 7, 2009. Then, only the Top 77, based on the voting, will be eligible for review by the New7Wonders of Nature Panel of Experts, under the leadership of Prof. Federico Mayor, former Director-General of UNESCO as they choose the 21 finalists. The Finalists will be announced on July 21, 2009. The final declaration of the New7Wonders of Nature will be in 2011.
