Conserve Wildlife License Plate

The Endangered and Nongame Species Program's (ENSP) mission is to actively conserve New Jersey's biological diversity by maintaining and enhancing endangered, threatened and nongame wildlife populations within healthy, functioning ecosystems.

The program is responsible for the protection and management of nearly 500 wildlife species found in the Garden State. These include the 83 species currently listed as endangered or threatened.

The program is funded almost entirely by donations from the sale of Conserve Wildlife License Plates, grants and the state income tax check-off, as well as support from the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ. Without the interest and support of the public the ENSP would be unable to accomplish its many achievements.
