A lot of people say that size matters, and it definitely matters to animals. SeaWorld keeps their captive park animals confined to horribly small tanks, a minuscule percentage of the wide open space they had access to in the ocean. Is it ironic that SeaWorld’s float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will cover more ground than one of their captive whales does in their bathtub-like tanks? Actor, Jason Biggs pointed this out in his witty Twitter update:

“@SeaWorld heard you are only allowing your float to move in a small circle in one corner of 71st Street at the Thanksgiving parade?”

Despite big efforts to get SeaWorld out of the family-friendly holiday event, Macy’s and the parade organizers won’t budge and are keeping them in the line-up. Maybe the compromise is to stick their float in the corner?

If you are in the area, there is a protest happening at the parade. Join in and make your voice heard.

    Sea world has much better housing for their whales than the poor lonely whale in a tiny tank at Miami aquarium. That poor whale has it even worse.
