Conservationist Robert Gore passed away on February, 2017. Dr. Gore bought land in east Collier County, parcel by parcel, with the vision to create a wildlife sanctuary and educate children about the importance of preservation. Inspired by Dr. Gore's life and purpose, Cypress Cove Conservancy has now acquired and is working on the restoration of the home, The Robert H. Gore Education Center, and the 10 acre parcel of property it sits on, to continue his legacy. The property is now known as Cypress Cove Sanctuary, and in support of this vision, Conservation Collier has purchased the additional 169 acres surrounding the entire parcel Gore put together fully preserved.
The Naples Daily News published his obituary back in February and has just released "Conservation group hopes to save sanctuary that was Bob Gore's life's work" a special story about Gore and his property in East Collier. You can read the story by clicking here. The paper also published an old video of Dr. Gore expressing his intention to preserve the land and his vision for the future.
“... the whole area deserves to be preserved,”
- Dr. Gore of the land where he built a wildlife sanctuary in Collier County, east of DeSoto Blvd.
