Dead Sea needs your votes!

.
The Dead Sea needs your votes--and soon!
Please vote at least once to help the Dead Sea become one of the
New7Wonders of Nature.
.
Voting closes on 11.11.11.
Go to http://www.votedeadsea.com/how-to-vote and choose the easiest method for you.

The lake is disappearing at an alarming rate.
Its shores lie in the desert at 420 meters below sea level.
As the water level goes down, dangerous sinkholes are opening along the shore.

Winning New7Wonders of Nature status will bring it funding and more tourism and attention.
Israel, Jordan, and the Palestinian Authority have nominated the Dead Sea for this competition and all of us will benefit if it wins.

Thanks for your help!

Thanks Dina, just done. I'm amazed and horified about how much smaller it has become since I first saw it in 1981

I voted Dina...so many to choose from and to have to narrow it down to 7...very difficult! I did not know the Dead Sea was having problems, thank you for making me aware.

Although I've never visited the Dead Sea, it's been on my wishlist for a long, long time... I hope, one day, that I will be able to see it :)

Thanks for this. I was there twice - once on the Israel side, once on the Jordan side. A remarkable place!

JM said...

I surely will vote on the Dead Sea. It's outrageous that it's disappearing!

Reader Wil said...

I voted! Also for the Great Barrier Reef and 5 others.

Now I get it. This is something "NEW" all together. I should read more carefully. Yes, I found it and voted for it and passed it on
