Georgia drivers can show their support for the state’s wildlife conservation efforts in a new way.

Governor Nathan Deal and Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Mark Williams unveiled three new license plate designs Thursday. One features a bald eagle. The hunting themed plate displays deer and quail. A fishing tag shows off a trout.

“I want to thank the many Georgians that have supported the wildlife in the past by purchasing these plates and I’m excited to offer these new designs to our new customers,” said Williams.

The license plates were all designed by Georgia artists. They cost $60. $25 is for the manufacturing of the license plate. The $35 plate fee is divided into $25 for the state’s general fund and $10 for DNR.
