Sowing a secure future: Belgium’s new Ark to nurture biodiversity

Share this to :

Two out of five plants are threatened or endangered. Biodiversity is suffering and many foods may disappear from our menu. This new Ark will regenerate essential plant seeds like bananas that researchers from the botanic garden, together with the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT, have collected from as far away as Australia and the Asia Pacific. This precaution is not only a security measure but an investment in our future, as these seeds hold the genetic information needed to adapt to our ever-changing world.
