Buy or Renew a Wildlife License Plate
Three new wildlife-themed specialty plates are available now at your local county tag office! Thanks to a new printing process for the tags, these new plates feature captivating full-color artwork that spans the entire surface of the plates. Make a bold statement for wildlife conservation in Georgia by outfitting your vehicle with one of these eye-catching designs. Each purchase or renewal of the plates also contributes $10 to conservation work all over the state. The funds received from tag purchases provide the largest contributions to Georgia’s Wildlife Conservation Fund and Bobwhite Quail Initiative.
*** Update: A law change scheduled to take effect July 1, 2014, will roll back the cost of buying or renewing a wildlife plate to $25 and dedicate more than 75 percent of those fees to the Wildlife Resources Division programs that depend on them. With the changes, $19 of each purchase and $20 for a renewal will go to help wildlife. ***
Purchase of a soaring bald eagle plate supports Georgia’s Wildlife Conservation Fund, which benefits endangered and nongame wildlife and plants through conservation, education, land acquisition and recreation projects.
Georgia’s bobwhite quail, white-tailed deer, and wild turkey plate contributes directly to the Bobwhite Quail Initiative, which has created critical habitat for quail nesting, feeding and cover. The program positively affects more than 20,000 acres for quail and songbirds.
With the purchase of a Trout Unlimited license plate, anglers support Georgia’s trout conservation and management programs. These efforts impact trout production, stocking and stream restoration throughout North Georgia.
The specialty plates are $60 (plus the standard $20 registration fee and any applicable ad-valorem taxes). Annual renewal of the plates cost $35 (plus the standard registration and taxes). License plates are available for purchase online and at your local county tag office. Buy or renew your tag and show your support for wildlife in Georgia!
*** Note: With the new fee structure set for July 1, 2014, wildlife plates will cost only $25 more than a standard plate (plus the $20 registration fee and applicable ad-valorem taxes all tags incur). Annual renewal will be only $25 more (plus standard registration and taxes). Yet, $19 of the $25 purchase will be used for wildlife work and $20 of each renewal. ***
