Florida's Sea Turtle License Plate

"Helping Sea Turtles Survive"

Now we can each do a little to help. If you are getting a new license plate, select the attractive sea turtle plate featuring a loggerhead hatchling crawling towards the surf. If it is time to renew, make the switch to a sea turtle plate for your vehicle.

Proceeds generated by sales of the turtle plate go to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Marine Turtle Protection Program to support research and management activities related to Florida's sea turtles. In addition, a portion of the revenue is distributed to CCC, which then redistributes the funding through the competitive Sea Turtle Grant Program to support turtle projects in the areas of research, education and conservation that benefit Florida sea turtles.

"And the turtles of course...all the turtles are free.
As turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be." - Dr. Seuss

When we became Florida residents, that is the license plate I chose for my car. I love it and am proud to have it on my car.
