Biodiversity for Resilience: Genebanks, Ensuring Resilience
Genebanks, or seed banks, are like active safety deposit boxes for the world’s crop diversity. Much like you store your money in a bank and withdraw it to pay bills, genebanks protect seeds for the long-term. This material is then withdrawn and used by scientists to create climate-resilient crops for farmers. By supporting the over 1,700 genebanks worldwide, you can help ensure that the foods we love will remain on our tables for good.
