A bison-themed vanity plate for Oklahoma vehicles is just 100 pre-orders away from becoming a reality. 

The Nature Conservancy requested the special interest plate and began accepting pre-orders in November. The organization must have 500 pre-orders by May 1, 2017 in order for the plate to be put into production and made available at tag agencies statewide. 

The plate features the slogan "Pioneers of the Prairie" and was created by Chris Miller of Tulsa, OK. This winning design was selected by a public vote. 

“We are thrilled by the outpouring of support from the public,” said Mike Fuhr, State Director for The Nature Conservancy of Oklahoma. “It’s been exciting to come into the office for the last six weeks and see our mailbox overflowing with pre-orders. We are hopeful that we can wrap this project up before the end of the year and kick 2017 off by putting the bison license plate into production.”  

The special plate will cost drivers $38 with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Nature Conservancy's conservation efforts in Oklahoma. Pre-orders are available through The Nature Conservancy's web site

The conservancy says bison play a crucial role in maintaining grasslands. The organization manages 13 herds throughout North America including a herd of 2,500 at the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve near Pawhuska.
