With around one in five plant species estimated to be threatened with extinction worldwide, seed banks are an effective means of preserving the world’s plants for the future.  

The Millennium Seed Bank (MSB) is a growing collection of seeds from around the world, aiming to provide a safety net for species at risk of extinction.  

The MSB is now the largest and most diverse wild plant species genetic resource in the world – the result of contributions from a global network working across more than 95 countries (the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership).
