Dolphins will be jumping out of Atlanta state number plates soon.
The number plates are herald the Georgia Aquarium’s $125 million dolphin inspired expansion scheduled to open in late 2010.
The attraction has created six designs for the special interest number plates, each featuring the marine mammal, and is asking guests and Web site visitors to vote for the number plates.
Four of the choices are illustrations and the other two show a photo of a silhouetted dolphin jumping over a setting sun.
The winner will be announced later this month, in conjunction with a celebration of the aquarium’s 20 millionth visitor. The number plates go into production in August.
"We’re confident that this will be a great way to build anticipation for the dolphin expansion while also giving back, with donations going toward dolphin research and conservation" aquarium boss Ian Holmes said.
The number plates can be ordered for $25 through the aquarium Web site or at the attraction.
Vehicle owners needn’t wait until they apply; registration fees and taxes will not be affected. County tag offices will contact purchasers when their number plates are ready.
In addition to standard number plates, the Georgia Department of Revenue’s Web site offers specialty plates for 35 universities and colleges, 38 for the military, six motorcycle and 78 special interest number plates, from AIDS Survival and Amateur Radio to Georgia Industry and "thanks parents".
