Orange Peels Were Dumped By Juice Company in Deforested Area, 16 Years Later This Is What It Looks Like!
Ecologists Daniel Janzen and Winnie Hallwachs had an interesting idea, they wanted to implement that idea, and so they went to a juice company. Their idea consisted of two conditions, the company will need to give a small area of a totally unspoiled, forested land to the Área de Conservación Guanacaste, and they could in return get rid of their discarded peels and pulp for free.
The company agreed to their idea, and the area where they could throw the orange juice waste was a grazed and deforested portion of land. After the company had thrown a mass of peels on the land, everybody left the land as it was for decades and they had already put a sign so that if anyone decided to study it in the future could find the place easily.
After 16 years, Janzen sent a graduate student named Timothy Treuer to see what happened in the place, and when Treuer arrived at the place, he couldn’t find the sign, but Janzen confirmed that it was the intended place.
After a further look, Treuer was shocked by what he found, he discovered that the two areas which are the right and left of where the orange juice waste was thrown were two completely different ecosystems.
Ecologists noticed that the newly grown orange peel plot had bigger biodiversity, richer soil, and a well-developed canopy, and a surprising tyra(a dog-sized weasel) and other fantastic things.
So orange juice waste can help forests and the ecosystems, and it can lead to amazing discoveries.
