WILD facts: Help wildlife
Placeholder Image

Georgians can support nongame wildlife conservation, education and recreation projects by purchasing a wildlife license plate for their vehicles. A one-time $25 tag fee applies in addition to annual registration and ad-valorem fees. The bald eagle and hummingbird license plates are a primary funding source for the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division’s Nongame Conservation Section.

Another easy way to support nongame conservation is through the Give Wildlife a Chance state income tax checkoff. Just fill in an amount more than $1 on line 26 of the long state income tax form (Form 500) or line 10 of the short form (Form 500EZ). Details at
