Sipadan Island is picking up momentum in the race for the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

The premier diving site off the east coast of Sabah is now ranked Number 14, from Number 18 about four weeks ago.


As you can see from the screenshot above [live ranking here] Sipadan Island is just three rungs short of being among the elite 77 group of nominees and for that it needs to be in rank Number 11.

Why 77 is important?

There are several stages in the voting process, the first being to select 77 out of 261 nominees, voting of which is under way until mid-July this year.

There will be another round of voting to select 21 nominees from the group of 77. Of the 21, seven will be selected as the New Seven Wonders of Nature, results of which will be announced in 2011.

To be in position Number 11, Sipadan needs to knock out Bocas del Toro, Ko Phi Phi Island and Maldives Archipelago.

Sipadan needs your votes now to make it to Number 11, and to remain in the group of 77 “elite” nominees.
