“We are proud to raise awareness of the first national parks in Hawaiʻi through release of these specialty license plates. We hope all residents will be inspired to find their volcano and support these treasured landscapes,” said Cindy Orlando, superintendent of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.

The license plates were authorized by a 2015 state law to raise funds for resource protection and education projects at Haleakalā and Hawai‘i Volcanoes.

The plates feature volcanic views and rare native species like the nēnē and the silversword. Sae Design, a Wailuku graphic design company, designed the plates as a donation to the National Park Service. The specialty license plate program will be administered by the DMV and revenues generated will be managed by Hawai‘i Pacific Parks Association, a non-profit partner that supports six national park sites in Hawaiʻi and American Samoa.

Proceeds will go to the two Hawai‘i national parks. To learn specialty plate costs, contact your local DMV.
