The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has just made pre-ordering a Salton Sea specialty license a whole lot easier.

Instead of filling out a hard copy and mailing it in, you can now purchase a plate online using a credit card at

Funds raised from the sale of the plates help to restore the Salton Sea's air quality, wildlife habitat and precious water.

Under the Department of Motor Vehicle's rules regarding the issuance of specialty license plates, 7,500 specialty plates must be pre-ordered by Jan. 30, 2017, before they can be produced and distributed.

Funds raised from the specialty plates will support the Salton Sea Ecosystem Restoration Program, a coordinated effort among the California State Legislature, various federal, state and local agencies, stakeholders and the general public.
