Easter Island (Rapa Nui) lies isolated and apart in the vast Pacific Ocean. This lonely island, between Tahiti and South America, contains spectacular archaeological wonders, many of which have been studied by scientists from all over the world.
Easter Island is unique. Even today, many of its mysteries remain unsolved and much work remains to be done. However, increased tourism and plans for development threaten its priceless heritage.
The Easter Island Foundation aims to build a solid endowment to assure the continuation of its projects. Your contribution is needed and appreciated. Please join us in helping to preserve this unique isolated island and its archaeological treasures.
