Islanders have raised more than $160,000 for wildlife protection efforts through the sale of conservation licence plates.
A total of 13,621 conservation plates have been purchased since September 2013.
“The conservation plates are a great way for Islanders to take an active role in supporting the province’s wildlife and natural habitats,” said Duncan Crawford, president of the P.E.I. Wildlife Federation and a member of the Wildlife Conservation Fund Committee.
“On behalf of the committee, I would like to thank all the groups involved for their hard work and continued support of the Wildlife Conservation Fund which provides financial resources to support dozens of wildlife groups, nature organizations, conservation initiatives and watershed groups.”
The red fox remains the most popular design. Other designs feature the blue jay, the goose, the lady slipper and the trout.
