British environmental campaigner, maritime
lawyer and pioneer swimmer, Lewis Pugh was
the first person to complete a long-distance
swim in every ocean.
He frequently swims in vulnerable ecosystems
to draw attention to their plight and is
best known for undertaking the first swim
across the North Pole in 2007 to highlight
the melting of the Arctic sea ice and for
swimming across a glacial lake under the
summit of Mount Everest in 2010 to draw
attention to the melting glaciers in the
Himalayas, and the impact the reduced water
supply will have on world peace.
