Louisville Zoo License Plate!
The Louisville Zoo is sponsoring a new Kentucky specialty license plate! The plate features one of the world’s most stunning animals, the polar bear.
Funds raised through this project provide on-going support to the Zoo’s critical conservation efforts locally and worldwide, as well as its statewide conservation and education programs.
You can own one of these beautiful license plates and show your support for the Louisville Zoo for just $10 more than regular license and registration fees.
The Zoo plate is available for purchase at your local County Clerk’s Office.
- The cost of purchasing the new plate is $44. ($10 is tax-deductible and goes to the Zoo.)
- The cost to renew your annual registration is $31 ($10 is tax-deductible and goes to the Zoo.)

If you are converting from a regular plate, you will need to turn it in when you purchase your plate.
- Specialty plates cannot be personalized at this time.

Well over 85,000 children visit the Zoo annually for field trips, overnight programs, family workshops. And the Zoo goes on the road to over 10,000 annually through outreach programs.
The Louisville Zoo, a non-profit organization and state zoo of Kentucky is dedicated to bettering the bond between people and the planet by providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for visitors, and leadership in scientific research and conservation education.
