        The first 1 km swim in the history of mankind  in a glacial lake in Antarctica took place on January 23, 2020. It was made in the same swimming trunks, cap and glasses by a unique swimmer-ecologist, professor, "Patron of the oceans" from the UN - Lewis Pugh . 

Sustainable Development Goals UN


    With this swim, he attracted  world attention to the plight of the oceans associated with vital climate and environmental problems.  Lewis is pushing for the creation of ocean reserves ( MARINE PROTECTED AREAS (MPAS) and proved that this task can be solved. But broad and powerful support is needed so that the greed and pride of the powerful do not interfere with the solution of a vital task for mankind. The swim is also dedicated to the 200th anniversary discoveries of Antarctica by our  navigators Bellingshausen and Lazarev.


    Lewis is supported by many world figures and organizations, such as Ted Turner , Bill Clinton , UNEP , Financial Times , Discovery and others.  With him in Antarctica will be the former president of Costa Rica  Jose Maria Figueres  and the most titled hockey player in the world, the UN Ambassador for the Arctic and Antarctic - Slava Fetisov , whom Lewis respects very much and personally asked for support.

It was Slava Fetisov who invited Anton Vakulenko, the youngest member of our family, to support the Antarctic mission   and introduced me to Lewis.

 We were pleasantly surprised when we soon received a detailed invitation from Lewis himself. This truly great man, whose speeches, in particular, were listened to with reverence by the royal family and the elite of Great Britain in Westminster, turned out to be very easy to communicate with. 


.  So our 12-year-old Anton and the whole family communicated with him for a long time via video communication and corresponded.


     In general, Lewis won the hearts of Anton and all of us, and we are eager to do everything possible to support his environmental and climate mission, especially since this fully coincides with our own mission to support UN SDGs, Green Deal, etc.

     We have already prepared and executed several  performances with vocals (Anton laureate   many vocal competitions,  and talk shows with his participation were watched by about 20 million people), dedicating them to Lewis


In January, at a meeting with Greta Thunberg in Stockholm, we asked her to support this mission of Lewis, and she did not refuse. We write and talk about mission everywhere.

Dear Anthony,


I hope you are very well.


I have 2 missions in life. One is to swim, and the other is to tell as many people as possible about the importance of protecting our oceans.


Next month, I am looking to do both of these things in Antarctica, and will be joined by Slava Fetisov.


I am going to try to swim 1km in a supra-glacial lake on top of the Antarctic Ice Sheet. It will be near freezing water and it should take me about 20 minutes. I am currently training every day to get my mind and body ready.


There are very few true wilderness areas left in the world. In terms of our ocean, only about 13% is largely untouched by humans, and this becomes less and less each year.


So the goal of my swim will be to reach out to people around the world to show them how special Antarctica is, and how the Southern Ocean needs to be protected as soon as possible.


We will have very good satellite connectivity so we will be able to connect globally on social media and TV, live from Antarctica.


As 2020 is such a special year, being the 200 year anniversary of the discovery of Antarctica by Admiral Bellingshausen, we think this is a really good opportunity to reach out to the whole of Russia with this message. To every household, to every school and to every leader.


Anton, I know that you care deeply about the state of our planet so I would like to please ask for your help.


Our plan is to go to Antarctica by plane, via Cape Town, arriving on January 21st and leaving on January 25th. Aside from my swim, there will be a chance to visit an Emperor Penguin colony as well as nearby science stations, including Novolazarevskaya. We would get back to Moscow in time for the bicentennial celebrations on the 27th /  28th January.


We would love you to be a part of our expedition. Ideally we would like you to come with us.


Sadly this will probably not be possible. We have very limited space for our crucial safety and camera crew.


But we would honored if you would be our Youth Ambassador and connect with Slava and myself regularly by satellite while we are in Antarctica. And of course we would love to meet you in Russia.


Thank you so much for giving this your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.


best wishes
