Buy A Plate
Your car can still help save the planet.
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. 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 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. Examples of recent projects funded by these plates can be found here.
So, the next time you renew or order a plate, make it one of ours — even if you no longer drive a Beetle.
Proceeds from the “bear” plate benefit nongame species conservation, from black bears and indigo snakes to endangered Florida grasshopper sparrows.
“Wildlife Foundation of Florida”
The Foundation’s “deer” 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, you’re helping the Foundation and our partner’s research and test solutions to these problems, leading to restoration of our most significant springs.

“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. Pick up one at your tax collector’s office today!
