The Svalbard Global Seed Vault (http://www.seedvault.no) provides a safe backup of seeds on food crops conserved by seedbanks worldwide. This picture is from inside the vault. The caretaker of the vault, Ola Westengen, is making the final adjustment of the seed boxes from the first seed deposit made at the opening of the vault.
Our arid lands repository sent clean seed samples to the vault after a request for materials in ~ 2010. Looks like a large and beautiful facility.
