Gore Island- close up…#marinedebris #CapeYork By the way, this island was named after John Gore (Royal Navy captain).
" In 1769 Gore became the first recorded person on the expedition to shoot and kill a person of Māori descent, following an altercation over a piece of cloth as the Endeavour charted the coast of New Zealand. Later, on 14 July 1770 Gore subsequently became famous for being the first person to shoot and kill a kangaroo (for scientific research) as the expedition made its way up the eastern seaboard of Australia.” Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Gore_(Royal_Navy_captain)
