Lewis Pugh is taking on a huge challenge by swimming the length of the Channel - around 350 miles (560km) - from Cornwall to Dover. The swim, which he hopes to complete within 50 days, is part of the worldwide Action for Oceans campaign, which calls on governments to fully protect at least 30% of the world's oceans by 2030. As well as raising awareness about ocean health, Pugh's swim will seek to highlight the positive impact marine conservation zones have on marine life. An epic mission and endurance feat - complete with jellyfish attacks and a shoulder injury.
