These bold swimmers looked past their differences to band together in the fight to save one of the world’s great wonders.

Sitting at 400 meters below sea level, the one-of-a-kind Dead Sea is in danger of disappearing due to mineral mining.

An Israeli, a Jordanian and a Palestinian felt that they couldn’t simply stand by and watch the glorious salty sea die.

They joined together to swim across the body of water for the first time ever in order to raise awareness of the plight of the Dead Sea and hopefully save it.

An Israeli filmmaker documented the historic swim and set up a crowdfunding campaign to help save the magical body of water.
