Divers, Easter Island

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features Tourists diving on Easter Island's reef encounter a fake moai, made for a 1994 Hollywood movie and then sunk offshore. The reef is healthy, though it is overfished. Tuna and salmon are imported, primarily for tourists. See more pictures from the July 2012 feature story "If Only They Could Talk."
