Through direct donations and purchase of these Endangered Resources license plates, Wisconsin citizens played an important role in bald eagles’ comeback. As a result of partnership efforts, bald eagles were removed from Wisconsin’s endangered species list in 1997 and the number of eagle pairs in Wisconsin has grown from 100 pairs in the 1970s to a record 1,465 in 2015.
