According to a post at Philippine Information Agency (PIA) official website on Friday, November 11, 2011, Mayor Hagedorn revealed that PPUR landed as one of the New7Wonders of Nature Top 10 contenders and said he is confident it will be among the winners.

As noted by the mayor, the other nine finalists include Dead Sea (Israel/Jordan/Palestine), Grand Canyon (United States), Great Barrier Reef (Australia/Papua New Guinea), Halong Bay (Vietnam), Jeita Grotto (Lebanon), Jeju Island (South Korea), Komodo Island (Indonesia), Sundarbans (Bangladesh/India), and Vesuvius (Italy).

The Puerto Princesa mayor added that PPUR is now generating around P700-million income for the city since tourists have been visiting the place when the government campaign started, led by President Noynoy Aquino who issued Proclamation 182.

Last Sunday, November 6, the same line-up of New7Wonders of Nature Top 10 contenders was revealed by the New7Wonders of Nature organization, headed by its president, Bernard Weber.
