Michigan Announces New Kirtland’s Warbler License Plate

Michigan Announces New Kirtland’s Warbler License Plate

(Michigan SOS, Jan. 8, 2022)

Michigan’s wildlife habitat license plate now features the Kirtland’s warbler – chosen as the latest species to be highlighted on the license plate to celebrate the recovery of this unique bird.

In 2019, the Kirtland’s warbler was removed from the endangered species list. Ongoing efforts by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and a multitude of partners have ensured nesting habitat is available, and will continue to be, for this songbird that nests only in young jack pine stands in Michigan, Wisconsin and Ontario.

All proceeds from the sale of the wildlife habitat license plate will continue to support the Nongame Fish and Wildlife Trust Fund and will benefit nongame species like the warbler.

Since the license plate became available in 2006, with the loon as the first species featured, it has raised over $3.9 million.

You can buy the wildlife habitat license plate through the Secretary of State for $35, with $25 going to the Nongame Fish and Wildlife Trust Fund.
