Urging Filipinos to vote for Palawan's Underground River

Filipinos can vote online at www.new7wonders.com, or by texting PPUR to 2861. Voting ends on November 11, 2011.

We can help Puerto Princesa Underground River, as well as the Philippines, garner a distinct spot on the international tourist map.

While winning a place in the top seven bolsters our sense of national pride, recognition is not the only thing we can gain. We must also remember that the tourists we can potentially attract will redound to thousands of employment opportunities; our success here will ultimately breed success for Filipinos everywhere.

They have made some stunning discoveries—such as the fossils of sea cows or Sirenia dating back to the Miocene period—roughly 20 million years ago. Aside from being rare fossils previously found only in Java, Indonesia, these findings also emphasize further the sheer historic value of our Underground River and of the country we live in.

The New 7 Wonders website described the PPSR National Park as having the world's longest underground river with amazing stalactites and stalagmites formations.

The distinguishing feature of the river is that it winds through a cave before flowing directly into the South China Sea. Photo by Agence France Presse
