PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Oregon Wildlife Foundation has proposed a new license plate that would promote safe habitats for animals in the state.
The plate features a mule deer and Mt. Hood — 2 northwest icons. The Oregon Wildlife Foundation said mule deer are in decline and threatened by cars and trucks as they migrate past Highway 97.
The foundation will need to sell 3,000 vouchers for the plate before it can be sent to the Department of Motor Vehicles and be made.
After the cost of funding and producing the new license plates, the Oregon Wildlife Foundation said proceeds from further purchases would go to a Watch for Wildlife Fund, which would support projects to help safe animal migration.
Vouchers cost $40. If you buy a voucher but not enough are sold to produce the plate, you get a refund from OWF.
