Tune into this page to discover a multitude of reasons why SeaWorld is a rotten establishment and why anyone that supports them should be totally and completely ashamed of themselves.
This is a photographic comparison of SeaWorld Orlando’s orca tanks and Blackstone CEO Stephen Schwarzman’s estate in the Hampton’s. The length of his house is 63.77 feet longer than the length of the orca tanks. Schwarzman’s home sits on 9.9 acres and is 20,000 square feet. He also owns a 20,000 square foot, 37-room home in Manhattan, along with several other homes around the world.
There are seven orcas sharing the tanks at SeaWorld Orlando. Stephen Schwarzman is 5’6”. The orcas are kept at SW Florida are:
-Tilikum: 22 feet long
-Kayla: 18.8 feet long
-Katina: 17 feet long
-Trua: 12 feet
-Nalani: 7 feet long
-Makaio: 7 feet long
-Malia: 6 feet long
In the wild these animals would spend their lives with a family swimming up to 100 miles day. At SeaWorld they are forced to perform and swim in circles in exchange for their unnatural meal of dead fish.
These orcas are stuck and forced to live within confines smaller than that of the man who owns them. Not only can Stephen Schwarzman leave his property, which dwarfs the orca tanks at SeaWorld, but in a twist of sick irony he also has a view of the ocean that the orcas were stolen from.
Stephen Schwarzman, SeaWorld and any and all SeaWorld supporters should be ashamed of themselves. Every dollar spent at SeaWorld goes into the pocket of Stephen Schwarzman so he can continue to live a lavish and self-indulgent lifestyle while the animals he exploits suffer.
