"News & Issues" piece on Maine's new chickadee license plate, which has caused loon license plates to slip. Since 1993, when the loon plate was first issued, the state has raised $5.2 million in revenue for wildlife research and habitat protection. In 1998, some 115,000 Maine cars had loon plates, about one in nine. But that same year the chickadee plate was introducted, and loon plates sales fell sharply, by about 50 percent. Mark McCollough, the artist who designed both plates and who also heads the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife's endangered and threatened wildlife program, said one remedy would be to add up to 50 cents to the standard chickadee plate to make up for lost loon plate sales.
