Svalbard Global Seed Vault

The Svalbard Global Seed Vault is a “vault” in the permafrost of Svalbard where 100 Millions duplicates of seeds from seed collections from around the globe are stored. Its mission is to assure “food reserves” and to provide a “backup system” against loss of diversity in traditional genebanks – a kind of modern “Noah’s Ark”.
