There's a back-up plan for plants going extinct in the wild - it's called seedbanking. Scientists from the Australian PlantBank spend weeks in the field tracking down native plant material from all over the country to bring back to the incredible facility in Western Sydney, so they don’t disappear forever. Go deep into the Australian PlantBank labs and discover how scientists are experimenting with storing plant material in agar jelly, special freezers and liquid nitrogen to build this vital insurance policy for plants, and us. Thank you to the Australian PlantBank sponsors HSBC and TransGrid as well as the Arcadia Fund for supporting this vital scientific work.
