DNR License Plate Series supports wildlife and conservation

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources License Plate Series are specialty plates available to the general public. Each plate portrays the importance of natural resources in our state from saltwater recreational fishing and hunting opportunities to conservation of endangered and threatened species.
           
S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) currently offers four license plates. This includes the Gone Fishing Plate (red drum), Endangered Species Plate (loggerhead sea turtle) and two Wildlife Series plates (painted bunting and white-tailed deer plate). Revenue from the sale of the license plates is used by DNR for fish and wildlife management and conservation programs as authorized by SC law.
