Sup­port­ing wildlife

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - LIVING -

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.
