Whale Tails: New CA License Plate Looks A Lot Like Old CA License Plate
On Tuesday morning at a press conference the California Coastal Commission unveiled a new "Whale Tail" license plate that looks uncannily like its retired replacement. The new design, however, features a more lifelike whale instead of a rendering from Laguna Beach artist Wyland.
Officials reportedly changed the plate "after Wyland requested that 20 percent of profits from his work fund his environmental foundation," according to CBS Local.
The California Coastal Commission was established in 1972 to preserve and protect the California coast. In 1997, the Coastal Commission developed the Whale Tail® License Plate as a way for the public to contribute directly to coastal preservation and coastal and marine education programs throughout the state. Since its introduction, the Whale Tail has been among the highest selling specialty plates in California.
