You can help support bay restoration efforts by purchasing a Tampa Bay Estuary specialty license plate for just $17 per year. The Tarpon Tag is the only marine tag where all the funds raised stay in the Tampa Bay area. Revenues from the tag are returned to the local community in the form of funding assistance for the Bay Soundings online publication and Bay Mini-Grants to citizen groups, schools, and non-profit organizations. Since they were first introduced in 1999, nearly $2 million have supported eligible habitat restoration, pollution prevention, and environmental education projects. The Tampa Bay Estuary specialty license plate can be purchased in person at any Florida Tax Collector office or tag agency, by mail at your regular tag renewal time, or anytime by mail.
