For the first time ever, a Georgia Ducks Unlimited license plate will soon be available. With the help of the Georgia General Assembly, a bill was passed during the 2018 Legislative Session making the license plate a reality.
The best news?
The proceeds from the sale of these tags will go right back in the ground to support wetlands conservation in the State of Georgia!
Note: the artwork on this page is simply for illustrative purposes and does not represent the actual tag, however, the actual tag will be very similar to the one depicted here.
To my Georgia DU friends—
I write today wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year!
I wanted to take time to provide you an update on our Georgia DU license plate. Let me start by thanking everyone who has committed to a tag already.
We started the process to get a Georgia DU license plate in 2003; I was involved in those early conversations and was motivated to see this license plate come to fruition. Since that time, Georgia DU has passionately pursued the steps necessary to make this license plate a reality, and I was humbled to see the Georgia General Assembly pass House Bill 784 in 2018 which established a Georgia DU license plate.
Our charge from there was simple: presell 1,000 tags at $25/tag to illustrate to the Georgia Department of Revenue that there is truly interest in this tag. We started preselling tags on July 1, 2019 and I was the most optimistic person who felt we would surpass the 1,000 mark in no time. They money that is generated from the license plate sales will go directly towards wetlands conservation work here in Georgia.
The truth is that as of today (January 1, 2020) we are sitting at 415 tags. I wanted to share this number with you to illustrate our transparency throughout this process.
Now, it’s time for our challenge. To finalize the process and ensure the tags are available, we must obtain commitments for 1,000 tags.
Now is the time that we want to ask you to share the opportunity to secure a tag with your friends, family, duck hunting buddies and those who value our mission.
Once we have commitments for 1,000 tags, we will follow up with you to issue your tag claim voucher, which you will use to take to your local tag office. If for some reason we do not reach 1,000 tags, you will receive your money back.
Our goal is to surpass 1,000 tags committed by February 29 (2020 is a leap year) so that we can begin putting Georgia DU license plates on vehicles throughout Georgia.
Help us finish strong and show your strong support for Ducks Unlimited!
