Marianas Trench: One of the 7 Wonders of Nature

I need your help.

I need you to visit this website and nominate the Marianas Trench as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Visit this website and type in your email and nomination. Please list the country for the Marianas Trench as the "Northern Mariana Islands." I listed the category as "Underwater World, Reef."

With that said, and I hope you nominate the Marianas Trench based on my request alone, I'm going to write up a story about this for the Saipan Tribune. It has already been reported on CNN.

Imagine if two years from now, the Marianas Trench is named one of the 7 Wonders of Nature. That would put us on the map.

Do it for your country!

***Please copy this onto your blog***


My article on the Marianas Trench made the front page!

heck ya! maybe we could form a group to advocate for it. how about TTMT? (TaoTao Marianas Trench)

Bruce A. Bateman said...

Good idea, Angelo. I voted....added a couple of other interesting possibilities too. Maybe we should all vote for the Saipan Grotto in addition to the Trench.........no where near as impressive or as likely to be named one of the top 7 but perhaps some exposure will be gained.

The Saipan Blogger アンジェロ・ビラゴメズ said...

That is a very good idea. Why not?

I'm figuring out how to do this and will report on what we need to do in my article for the Tribune.

We have over a year to get this done.

...and I think the trench is a shoe-in.

What exactly are you going to show them? What is there to see? Where the hell is it exactly?

The Saipan Blogger アンジェロ・ビラゴメズ said...

You'll see from my article that it has already been nominated.

You gotta fight for your right to...explore the world's deepest trench

allright I voted, although something that deep underwater isn't going to attract that much attention. Any movement with the Grotto? I'll nominate "Saipan Grotto" A bunch of novices will probably die, but it is good PR.

BTW, reseructing the little red railroad is a hell of an idea. Maine is in the process of using the old right of ways as either train routes or walking trails and so far so good. One of the things I didn't do on Saipan was explore the back back route to Tapacho from kannat tabla on the old line. Didn't help that I found the road on my next to last day, but so it goes. You could do it on your scooter, ask Bruce for the route.
