The first (I think, or at least first govermnent-organised) seed vault was in Leningrad, as botanists sought out new plants to enable Soviet agriculture to feed and serve the people as a shining example of communist progress! The scientists risked their lives to protect the seeds from being eaten during the siege, for which Stalin later rewarded them by executing them, because he decided that genetics and inheritance of characteristics was anti-communist!

Sucks!!

This image is of a snowy sheathbill at Anvers Island, Antarctica. Snowy sheathbills are scavengers, acquiring much of their nourishment by stealing food already caught by penguins and shags or by eating human refuse. For this reason, they frequently live close to gentoo and chinstrap penguin or shag colonies. They primarily live around the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. Sheathbills can grow to 40 centimeters (16 inches) in length with a wingspan of 79 centimeters (31 inches).

I feel a little torn - are we saving seeds for the human population or depriving the birds from their survival....

JJ - your photos have morphed into a very unfrozen cover shot!

my contribution is not beautiful (the red line is annoying, and the time lapse is so fast it flashes too much) but I think it is interesting to watch, and might as well go in here. Time lapse - seven years of a glacier in Alaska.

Our ruska time is over, now it's all wet and grey. But alas! It's already snowing in Lapland, and we have got night temperatures below zero...
