It appears that Oregon will have a new license plate with the image of a gray whale mother and her calf after the Oregon State University Marine Mammal Institute sold its 3,000th voucher for the plates earlier this week. The Marine Mammal Institute will continue to sell the $40 vouchers for the next few weeks at www.whaleplate.com, For each voucher sold, the institute will receive $35, which will help fund marine mammal research and education. “There has been a great deal of enthusiasm from Oregonians for the new plates – not only because of how striking they are, but also because they will help fund whale conservation efforts,” said OSU’s Bruce Mate, who directs the institute.
