The good news is these plates will benefit these beautiful creatures as the Illinois state website gave details saying:

Proceeds from the plate support the Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ Roadside Monarch Habitat Fund, which helps foster habitats to support the butterflies during their twice-yearly migratory journey from Mexico to Chicago with a goal to add 150 million new milkweed stems and other nectar resources to the Illinois landscape in the next 15 years.

It's an easy 3-step process. First, you have to apply for one. Then you get the joy of finding out how much the state of Illinois will drain from your wallet. Step 3 is dropping that application and payment in the mail. Fun.
