Posted by: Shanna Carpenter

In this brief talk from TED U 2009, Jonathan Drori encourages us to save biodiversity — one seed at a time. Reminding us that plants support human life, he shares the vision of The Millennium Seed Bank, which has stored over 3 billion seeds to date from dwindling yet essential plant species. (Recorded at TED2009, February 2009, in Long Beach, California. Duration: 6:35)
