Svalbard Global Seed Vault
It is a facility located on a remote island in the Arctic Ocean and it houses the world’s largest collection of seeds. The seeds can be of use in the event of a global catastrophe or when some species is lost due to natural disasters. It is therefore also referred to as the doomsday vault. According to the latest release release from Crop Trust, one of the operators of the vault, there have been over a million seed samples deposited by 73 institutions till date.
