The FOOD ARK

In this month's National Geographic Mag, Charles Siebert writes an enlightening, fascinating and wonderfully informative article on the campaign to protect our world's future food supply.

As most of us walk blindly down supermarket aisles, not giving a second thought to where our food comes from or where it will come from tomorrow, food varieties extinction is happening all over the world and happening at an alarming speed. Mr. Siebert reports that approximatley 90% of America's historic fruit and vegetable varieties have vanished, in China 90% of the wheat varieties have disappeared in the past century and during this time we have lost more than half of the world's food varieties.

Why does this matter? Mr. Siebert explains that if disease or future climate change "decimates one of the handful of plants and animals we have come to depend on to feed our growing planet, we might desperately need one of those varieties we've let go extinct...the best hope for securing food's future may depend on our abililty to preserve the locally cultivated foods of the past."

We pay tribute here to those amongst us who have responded quite rapidly to gathering and safely storing the seeds of as many different crop varieties as they can before they disappear forever.

There are about 1,400 seed banks around the world today. The most ambitious is the new Svalbard Global Seed Vault on the Norwegian Island of Spitsbergen (700 miles from the North Pole) also referred to as the 'Doomsday Vault', a back-up for all the world's other seed banks...A modern day Food Ark.
