Mississippi Aquarium’s speciality license plate to benefit conservation efforts

The Mississippi Aquarium is hoping that you’ll “sail around town in style” while supporting conservation efforts by purchasing a new specialty license plate.

According to the aquarium, proceeds from the plate will support “research and conservation efforts for dolphins and sea turtles along Coastal Mississippi and beyond.”

The plate, designed by Jason Heitzmann, was created to promote conservation efforts for native endangered species.

“The license plate features an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin and Kemp’s ridley sea turtle with the Aquarium’s iconic sails in the background. The sails represent the Aquarium’s three pillars: education, conservation and community.”

The plate would cost $33.00. This does not include the Ad Valorem taxes collected by the county tax collector. For production to begin, the Mississippi Aquarium must secure 300 pre-orders for the plate.
