WARNING: Possible spoilers for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ahead
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is currently in theaters, and it has brought interest back to the world created by Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg back in 1993.

A considerable and mystifying drop in population on Isla Sorna had recently been discovered; some paleontologists claimed it was the result of territorial disputes, others argued disease was the catalyst, while some scientists even placed the blame on the animals’ behavior. Recent revelations linked to the corruption of the Gene Guard Act by members of Masrani Global confirm the true cause – the introduction of illegally cloned animals on the island in 1999 caused a profound impact on the ecosystem. The term ”Chaos Effect,” coined from Dr. Ian Malcolm’s book God Creates Dinosaurs, has since become the accepted term for describing the radical and unnatural changes that took place on Isla Sorna.
The sudden drop in population and the “illegally cloned animals” point to one culprit:
