Over 500 people have purchased Wyoming conservation plates
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Department of Transportation says more than 500 people have purchased Wyoming license plates promoting wildlife conservation.
The plates, which became available Jan. 1, feature a mule deer design as a way to raise awareness about wildlife conservation and to help protect wildlife migration routes.
The initial application fee for the plates is $180, with $150 going to the conservation fund and $30 to the specialty plate fee. Motorists will play $50 annually as a fee for the plate, and an embossed plate comes with an additional $50 charge.
Proceeds from the plates will go toward supporting wildlife conservation projects related to the transportation system, such as signage, animal crossings and fences
