As a part of a routine study in 2016, Stephen Simpson who is a marine biologist in England researched a site called Lizard Island. There were cyclones in 2014 and 2015 that almost destroyed the ecosystem of that area. Simpson says that He felt as if that place was a graveyard with no signs of life around.
