Drive for Conservation - Save Our Native Species license plate decals available

The Division of Forestry and Wildlife has the responsibility to manage and recover more than 329 rare, threatened, and endangered species across the state. With limited funds, the Division prioritizes the needs of species through planning and consultation with subject area experts and works with partners to develop and implement projects to protect and recover these species.

After many years of discussion and many requests, the Division worked with county Motor Vehicle Divisions to create the DLNR/DOFAW license plate. The Division designed and introduced the specialty license plate to raise awareness about the need to protect Hawai'i’s threatened and endangered native species. 

The artwork, designed by Ron Walker, features an I’iwi (Hawaiian honey creeper) and the Ohia lehua blossom along with the words "Protect Our Native Species."

By purchasing a specialty license plate every individual in the state has the opportunity to assist in the protection of threatened and endangered species and their habitat. The funds generated from license plate sales will be used to support Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Forestry and Wildlife existing programs in need of additional resources.
