UNEP Patron for Oceans, Lewis Pugh is swimming the Seven Seas to urge policy makers to protect at least 10% of the world's seas in a network of well managed and well designed Marine Protected Areas.

During the month of August 2014, the United Nations Patron of the Oceans will be the first person to undertake long distance swims in each of the Seven Seas: the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Aegean, Black, Red, Arabian and North Sea. The expedition is almost complete and it has been a huge success.
