Great idea, but they also need to protect those endangered species more. Move them from the long arm of mankind to some kind of location that allows them the freedom to live free from the destruction of man and it's killing ways. As we have learned building reserves is not protecting them from the greed of their so called protectors.The purpose
It was the recognition of the vulnerability of the world’s genebanks that sparked the idea of establishing a global seed vault to serve as a backup storage facility. The purpose of the Vault is to store duplicates (backups) of seed samples from the world’s crop collections.
Permafrost and thick rock ensure that the seed samples will remain frozen even without power. The Vault is the ultimate insurance policy for the world’s food supply, offering options for future generations to overcome the challenges of climate change and population growth. It will secure, for centuries, millions of seeds representing every important crop variety available in the world today. It is the final back up.
As for the Vault, what happens if a catastrophe leaves those that know about it unable to help when really needed? I'm sure those in Norway know where it is, but it is a frozen prison that would probably be impossible to break into.
