THE LONGEST SWIM IN THE WORLD FOR NATURE: A CHALLENGE TO BE TAKEN ON BY NOAM YARON WITH THE SUPPORT OF KEY PARTNERS IN MARINE ENVIRONMENT CONSERVATION

This summer, Noam Yaron will embark on an unprecedented challenge by attempting to swim the longest distance in support of nature. The 27-year-old Swiss is preparing to swim from Calvi to Monaco, covering a distance of 180 km through the Pelagos Sanctuary in the Mediterranean Sea, in just 3 days and 3 nights, without leaving the water. This bold project is part of an awareness campaign for the preservation of the Mediterranean, which faces various environmental threats.

Noam benefits from crucial support from a network of partners committed to conservation, including three major international agreements in favor of protecting the Mediterranean Sea, based in Monaco: the RAMOGE Agreement, the Pelagos Agreement, and ACCOBAMS. In close collaboration with these institutions, Noam and his team strive to effectively convey key messages about Mediterranean conservation, fully understanding the challenges it faces and the actions taken by the three Agreements.

This campaign, named Mediterranean Odyssey, will highlight the richness and fragility of biodiversity within the Pelagos Sanctuary, and will offer the general public the opportunity to take action by choosing to preserve a volume of water corresponding to the size of various threatened Mediterranean species. Funds collected on the dedicated interactive platform will support conservation projects in the region.

Noam Yaron, already recognized for his previous sporting achievements, is determined to leverage his talent and collaborate with committed actors to raise awareness among the public and work towards the preservation of our planet.
