Vote_for_support2VOTE FOR PUERTO PRINCESA UNDERGROUND RIVER (PPUR) AS ONE OF THE NEW 7 WONDERS OF NATURE

On 03 June 2011, President Benigno S. Aquino III issued Proclamation No. 182 entitled "Declaring a National and International Promotion and Campaign for the Puerto Princesa Underground River as One of the New Seven (7) Wonders of Nature (N7WN)."

This proclamation is in support of the campaign for the inclusion of Puerto Princesa Underground River in the N7WN conducted by the Swiss-Based government-controlled foundation. From an initial list of over 400 locations around the world, the Puerto Princesa Underground River is one of the lone finalist from the Philippines and now counts among the top 14 of the 28 Official Finalist Candidates selected by a panel of international experts from a list of 77 contenders via the first round of global voting from 2007 to 2010. The Official Declaration of winner for the N7WN will be on 11 November 2011.

The Puerto Princesa Underground River is located about 50 kms. north of the city of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines. It features a limestone karst mountain landscape with an 8.2 kms. navigable underground river. A distinguishing feature of the river is that it winds through a cave before flowing directly into the South China Sea. It includes major formations of stalactites and stalagmites, and several large chambers. The lower portion of the river is subject to tidal influences. The underground river is reputed to be the longest underground river in the world. At the mouth of the cave, a clear lagoon is framed by ancient trees growing right to the water's edge. Monkeys, large monitor lizards, and squirrels find their niche on the beach near the cave
