About Lewis Pugh
Best known for his work highlighting the plight of deteriorating aquatic ecosystems through endurance swimming, Lewis Pugh is an environmental campaigner with a difference. Realising that the loss of sea and glacial ice, marine pollution and habitat destruction will have an impact not just on nearby people and animals, but on people the world over, Pugh decided to take action. His quests have seen him swim long distances in every ocean, as well as in one of Everest's glacial lakes. Not afraid to voice his opinions, hopes and dreams, Pugh is aware that a sense of purpose is essential to conquering what seems impossible. He aims to help his dream of clean oceans thriving with life come true, for our benefit and for the benefit of future generations.
