And the treasure we are talking about isn’t gold or diamonds. But rather something much more valuable than that. Svalbard Global Seed Vault is world’s insurance policy against natural calamities and bio disasters that might leave the earth’s lush green forests or farms, barren. Started around 6 years ago, this facility was funded by Norway and took a total of $9 million to fund. Today, this Seedbank holds over 800,000 seed-samples from around the world and pretty soon it will have every crop seed ever used by human beings.
The main purpose of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault is to restart the world’s food production in-case of a bio-disaster or nuclear warfare in the world.
