Ultimate Seed Vault

“A blastproof vault being built deep inside an Arctic mountain will be the world’s seed bank of last resort. Early withdrawal discouraged.”

In case of emergency, enter the Svalbard Global Seed Vault. The worlds most remote seed bank, located on the on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, is filled with over 4.5 million different samples of seeds. How the seeds would be distributed in some kind of worldwide catastrophe is unclear, but one thing is clear; there are only two reasons a seed would leave this vault:

1. To be replaced with a fresh group of seeds

2. In the end of the world when an entire crop has been wiped off the earth
