Mote Marine Laboratory has intiated the "Protect Our Reefs" specialty
license plate process for Florida vehicle owners concerned about our reef.
Proceeds from the plate will be used to support Florida reef research and
education, similar to that accomplished for "Wild Dolphins", "Sea 
Turtles", "Manatees", etc. by their plates.  Before the intiative can be
submitted to the State Legislature 15,000 Florida vehicle owners must
agree they would consider purchasing the specialty plate, if available
(owners of motorcycle and other restricted plates are ineligible).  Mote
is in the midst of obtaining those 15,000 supporters before the fall
legislative session.  More information and the opportunity to be counted 
electronically for the Florida Reef can be found on Mote's home page
( Supporting this effort by submitting the form does NOT
obligate one to purchase the plate when it becomes available. Thank you in
advance for your support!
