Remember when you wore your heart not only on your sleeve, but on your rear bumper? And trunk? And rear window? Those days may be over, but your car can still help save the planet. Just purchase one of the Fish & Wildlife Foundation of Florida’s conservation license plates online below or at your local tax collector’s office. For every plate sold, $25 is donated for conservation.
Each of our plates has a slightly different focus. Choose the one that best meets your passions. It’s not a small thing – we receive more than $1 million each year from these donations, funds that we and our partners use to conserve Florida black bears, wading birds, and many other species. We also use these monies to protect and manage new wildlife lands and waters and provide kids with formative outdoor experiences.
So, the next time you renew or order a plate at your local tax collector’s office, make it one of ours — even if you no longer drive a Beetle.
The redesigned “bear” plate is now available! Buy it online here. Proceeds from the plate benefit nongame species conservation, from black bears and indigo snakes to endangered Florida grasshopper sparrows. Learn more here.
“WILDLIFE FOUNDATION OF FLORIDA”
To purchase the “deer” plate online, click here. The plate benefits game species like white-tailed deer and Osceola turkeys. Funds are used to acquire and manage habitat for the benefit of these and other species. We also use funds to ensure and improve public access to hunting lands and to teach hunting safety.

“PROTECT FLORIDA SPRINGS”
Florida is home to 700 freshwater springs – more than anywhere else on Earth. But many are being degraded by pollution, invasive non-native water plants and other threats. By purchasing our “scuba diver” plate online here, you’re helping the Foundation and our partners research and test solutions to these problems, leading to the restoration of our most significant springs. Learn more about recent grants here.
“DISCOVER FLORIDA’S OCEANS”
This plate benefits the coastal and estuary research and conservation programs of both our Foundation and the nonprofit Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute. If keeping Florida’s offshore waters clean and full of fish and other marine life are important to you, this plate is the one for you. Purchase it online here.
