    Lagatta,

    I thought you would find this information interesting:

    Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway

    The Svalbard Global Seed Vault on the remote Norwegian island of Spitsbergen is strictly off limits to the public.

    The vault was built to store seeds that could be retrieved in the case of a huge environmental disaster.

    It is one of the most secure storage facilities on the entire planet, so tourists hoping to pay a visit to the vault will have to think again.

    Yes, I do, and I believe I’ve actually read this elsewhere. I’ve worked on Arctic issues in terms of Indigenous northern peoples, though I must point out that IANAS (I am not a scientist), unless one includes social sciences, which I wouldn’t in this case. Northern peoples such as the Inuit, Saami and Nenets come together in Circumpolar conferences to speak out for their interests.

    A beautiful rugged place: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spitsbergen

    Tourists have no more business visiting the vault than a high-security military base…
