Size Matters

This is the swimming pool for the San Alfonso del Mar Resort in Algarrobo, Chile. Holiday playground for the wealthy.

The pool is over ONE THOUSAND yards long.

It has a maximum depth of over 100 feet.

The pool is 80 feet wide. Yes. 80.

It has a maximum depth of  20 feet.

A prison cell to be exploited from on a daily basis.

She has been incarcerated here for decades. She cannot come and go as she pleases.

We have got this whole situation completely the wrong way round. We build vast playgrounds for ourselves. A watery playground so vast you can sail a small boat on it.

Yet we cannot even provide adequate care or housing for this majestic orca we stole from the ocean.

Size matters, so long as ours is bigger than theirs.
