UN Environment Patron of the Oceans, Lewis Pugh, braves Antarctic swim to help preserve the precious marine area

I’ve never been able to successfully banish the bad wolf into the wilderness, and today I had to battle hard to keep him from ruining my swim.

It wasn’t just any swim. Today we did the flagship swim in the Bellingshausen Sea, to launch the Antarctica 2020 Campaign. It’s the reason I came down here again, and the swim I’ve been training for, ever since my emergency back surgery in May.
