Easter Is. is off the chile coast, If I remember reading right, one of the main theories about these statues is that they were built to protect the Island, but I'm not too sure.

When the Easter Island was found by explorers the Island was uninhabited by anything...other than some animals. No one can explain how the gigantic statues could have been made and then transported... This is a really interensting mystery.

i think that Easter Island was once part of another large piece of land...such as Atlantis perhaps or even the Lemuria...who knowz

The island had thousands of inhabitants when the first Dutch, Spanish and English ships arrived in the 1700s. There are multiple models of how the statues could have been made and transported, sometimes using the palm trees that used to grow there as rollers. The population that built the statues is believed to have been much, much larger, possibly overpopulation resulted in famine and decline.
