Swimming the Seven Seas

In August 2014, the Foundation teamed up with endurance swimmer Lewis Pugh to complete seven long-distance swims in under a month. He is the United Nation’s Patron of the Ocean, and the goal of the challenge was to highlight the need for more Marine Protected Areas in order to conserve the ocean for future generations. Lewis set out to complete the first long distance swim in all the Seven Seas, the Mediterranean, the Adriatic, the Aegean, the Black, the Red, the Arabian and finally the North Sea.
