Do you have a car registered in Alabama and a passion for wildlife?

This is your chance to help protect our native wildlife and support the Alabama Wildlife Center!

The Alabama Wildlife Center has been authorized by the state to begin collecting pre-commitments for our specialty license plate – PROTECT WILDLIFE. As Alabama’s oldest and largest wildlife rehabilitation facility, we have saved over 100,000 mammals, reptiles, and birds during our 45-year history. This license plate will help us continue our mission of protecting wildlife across our beautiful state.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

Be one of the first 1,000 people to pre-commit to the AWC’s Protect Wildlife Tag, and we will cover your first year’s fee!

If you prefer to offer extra support to the AWC, you can choose to pay the initial fee yourself instead of using the complimentary voucher.

After the first year, renewal costs $50 annually (plus additional fees), with $41.25 of that amount being tax-deductible as a donation to the AWC.

When will the tag be available?

The state of Alabama requires 1,000 pre-commitments before production on the plate begins. Once this requirement is met the state will begin distributing the free vouchers and instructions on how to obtain the new license plate to those who applied in advance.

Once the plate is in production, anyone can request the plate at local licensing offices.
