“The world’s largest seed warehouse”

The world’s largest seed warehouse appears fictional and is located in Norway. It was designed to be indestructible and last for eternity, since it can withstand earthquakes and missile impacts. This construction is 130 meters deep in the mountain in Svalbard, 130 meters above sea level and almost 1300 km north of the arctic circle 130. It is also known as “the vault of the end of the world” or “the ark of Noe of the seeds “

From the entrance vestibule a corrugated steel pipe of about 100 meters goes into the interior of the mount and connects at the end with three vaults that contain seeds of about 865,000 varieties of different seeds. The main objective is to store all the possible seeds of the world in case of any disaster, scarcity or apocalypse, local or international. Those who have deposited their seeds there will be able to collect their samples once everything is finished.

It has a capacity for 5 million seeds and its vaults are kept at a temperature of -18 degrees. It is freely accessible to governments of all the countries of the world and any country is excluded.
