Eight-hundred miles from the North Pole, on the remote island of Spitsbergen, a huge vault sits 130 metres inside a cavernous sandstone mountain.

Behind the thick concrete wall lies the most diverse selection of food crop seeds in the world. Seeds from almost every country line the shelves as an emergency food supply to be used only in the event of nuclear fallout, mass famine, or other global crises.
