Atlantic Canada’s Bay of Fundy is among the top 77 nominees for the international New 7 Wonders of Nature contest.

The Bay of Fundy made it to the next round of competition where a panel narrows down the 77 nominees to 28. The 28 finalists will be announced July 21.

The Bay of Fundy was among 440 natural wonders selected for the contest.

In the most recent round of competition, people everywhere were able to vote for their favourite sites. Voting closed Tuesday.

Terri McCulloch, manager of Bay of Fundy Tourism, was fairly confident the Bay of Fundy would make it to the top 77 list. She said she’s been following the live voting results and the Atlantic Canada site has usually been in the top 77.

Ms. McCulloch is hoping the Bay of Fundy will make the list of 28 finalists. The top seven will be selected from the that list.

The contest is being run by the New7Wonders Foundation, based in Switzerland.
