DNR and state Department of Transportation leaders revealed the plate Wednesday, August 5th in Prairie du Sac.

Two other endangered species plates are currently available. One features a wolf. The other features a badger. The DOT website says a limited supply of the badger plates is left and the agency will stop accepting applications for it Aug. 17. The eagle plate will replace it.

The plates' fees include an annual $25 donation to the DNR's endangered species fund.
