A rare look inside the Svalbard Global Seed Vault which is closed ~350 days a year
Check out Audible:
More info on the seed vault:
My trip to Norway was funded by Screen Australia, Film Victoria and Genepool Productions as part of a new project. More information soon.
Special thanks to Bente Naeverdal and the Crop Trust:

Wow, it costs more to buy a small private jet than to build the seed vault. And people are questioning the cost?

"We don't store genetically modified seeds" aren't all seeds generically modified through selective breeding to make them more resistance to disease and more effective grow?

Bruh. The plant that grows marijuhana is the female plant. The male plant is the exact same but doesnt grow buds, wich means you cant get high from the plant. However you can make rope from it clothes, there is even a guy who used hemp to make the body for a car.

I feel like they’re actually doing a disservice by not including GMO seeds. Sure keep the “pure” non GMO also, but they shouldn’t not include GMO ones. The purpose of this whole vault is in a huge apocalyptic disaster where we would need to use these seeds then we would need seeds which would be able to produce in all kinds of situations, grow quickly, and produce the most fruit. Which is what we would need in that situation. Something that can produce a lot quickly.

Their also doing a disservice by not including “drug” plants. Because things like weed/coke plants have medicinal value. And if we need to restart the world we should have every tool possible we could get.

There has to be weed in there, to not allow it is stupid, it would be like preventing opium poppy seeds for goodness sake. Im pretty sure given weed, is a weed, it wouldn't be wiped out anyways.

Why no drugs? They aren't illegal depending on who you ask. Super stupid not to just try to save every plant that exists. Even a nowadays "useless" drug plant could become insanely valuable in the future.

@AlbinoNubian some are taken out because of the extraordinary situation in Syria and Iraq. But this is a vault ment to be a backup of our plant diversity in case of and event that wipes out all of it. That is why it is built far into a mountain. So I don't understand why its only ment to last 200 years. I know of churches built to last longer. And in the case of nothing happening, what do we do after 200 yrs?
