Governor Gore

I was very saddened to hear about the passing of former Governor Michael John Edward Gore CVO, CBE who served as the Governor of the Cayman Islands from 1992 until 1995.

Mr Gore was Governor when Her Majesty The Queen visited the Cayman Islands in 1994, meeting her Majesty off Royal Yacht Britannia alongside his wife Monica.

Governor Gore was passionate about the environment and biodiversity. As a keen birder he was instrumental in securing the land which is now Governor Michael Gore’s Bird Sanctuary in Spotts which is owned by the National Trust for the Cayman Islands and serves as an urban oasis for waterfowl and other birds. He also opened the boardwalk at Tarpon Lake on Little Cayman in 1995.

On behalf of everyone in the Cayman Islands I send my deepest condolences to Governor Gore’s wife Monica, family and friends at this sad time.
