William Douglas, aka Billy the Bee, founded the Billy the Bee Foundation in 2020, inspired by the belief that bees are amazing creatures and are critical to our survival. As pollinators, bees play a part in every aspect of the ecosystem. They support the growth of trees, flowers, and other plants, which serve as food and shelter for creatures large and small. The Billy the Bee Foundation is dedicated to teaching people how to ensure the survival of bees all over our planet.

Bill learned about bees firsthand as a Board Member of the Everglades Wonder Gardens in Bonita Springs, Florida. It is a community centerpiece that has
provided generations of Floridians and visitors the opportunity to experience rare and exotic plants and wildlife. Bees are critical to the ecosystem in the gardens. It was here that he was able to experience the wonders of the bees. He has also worked with local beekeepers to understand how the bees promote growth and beauty throughout Florida and beyond.
