The Cape Lookout Studies Program and the North Carolina Maritime Museum have a license plate program with a great conservation message.
By purchasing the special “Protect Wild Dolphin” NC Maritime Museum special license plate you will be supporting the museum’s research, conservation and education programs. Demonstrating your interest in protecting bottlenose dolphins and their habitat and making your car look better!
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.
Protect Wild Dolphins License Plate, better than an OBX sticker
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.
