The NCMM license plate proceeds help protect and increase our understanding of bottlenose dolphins that frequent the North Carolina coast.

Revenues from the plate sales will benefit the Cape Lookout Studies Program through the Friends of the Museum to support the education, conservation and research programs of the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort.

Sale of the dolphin plates will benefit both this project, and environmental studies and educational field trips that are part of the Maritime Museum’s Cape Lookout Studies Program. For each $30 plate purchased, the Friends of the Maritime Museum support group will receive $20. To personalize a dolphin plate requires an additional $20.

Please Help us Replace the Blazer

**NOTE: This is an older post, the blazer was replaced forever ago, but the needs of the program go on, click here to see how you can help.***

After 7 years on the Cape our Chevy Blazer from the NCMM field station is dead. We are giving you an opportunity to help us replace it. Ideally we’re looking for a donation of a good 8-cylinder 4WD vehicle with big tires and a trailer hitch. If you have any contacts that might help us get one please let me know. Also, Haywood Holderness is leading a fundraiser to help us purchase one if necessary. We have $6,950 so far and our goal is $10,000 by September 10th to help us purchase a used vehicle. If you could contribute to this or know anyone who can, please pass this message along and send checks payable to Friends of the Museum with the donation form before
