The moai (statues) pictured above are on Easter Island (Rapa Nui) off the coast of Chile. The island is famous for its statues, its remoteness, as well as its ecological collapse. A once thriving civilization of tens of thousands of people built, moved, and erected the nearly 100 ton statues without the aid of modern technology. However, that same civilization consumed too many resources and left the island treeless, nearly birdless, and fell into clan warfare and starvation. The once mighty population dwindled to less than a couple thousand by the 1700s
