Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- You can now buy a license plate to help researchers figure out why the Minnesota moose population is declining.
Minnesota's moose population has dropped 52 percent since 2010.
Now Minnesota motorists can now support moose and conservation research with a new critical habitat license plate featuring moose art by renowned wildlife artist Les Kouba.
It's part of the Reinvest in Minnesota Program.
Motorists make a minimum annual contribution of thirty dollars each year when they buy a specialty plate.
Each dollar is then matched with private donations of cash or land.
The new license plates are available at deputy registrar offices statewide.
