After a global vote, the New7Wonders Foundation announced last week its list for the new seven wonders of nature. The Swiss organization, founded in 2001 by filmmaker Bernard Weber, started with over 440 locations from more than 220 countries.

Here's a look at the destinations recognized by the foundation.
