Before inventing Honeypots and founding Bee Natural, owner Creighton Cutts worked
on Cumberland Island and in the Marine Mammals Department at the Smithsonian
A portion of proceeds from sales of Honeypots is donated for environmental research.
Creighton has been involved in several research projects, including
lead technician on
the Cumberland Island bobcat reintroduction project and training personnel
and conducting surveys for The Dolphin
Project, a multi-year study endorsed
by the Smithsonian to determine if the Bottlenose Dolphin population
on the coast
of Georgia was recovering from the die-off that occurred during the mid-eighties.
Creighton still maintains ties with the Smithsonian, and spends 1-2 months
a year on Cumberland Island. He was formally appointed Associate
Curator of the
private Cumberland Island Museum www.cimuseum.org seven
years ago, and was one of the principals involved in the actual construction
of the facility some years earlier.
Creighton's major goals in research are to assist graduate students
in their efforts to secure scholarships and grants for environmental
related studies, to continue with the marine mammal and reptile
stranding and reproduction research that he has been involved
in for two decades, and formulate the proposal and raise the
capital to expand the Smithsonian Institution to a network of
museums across the US (an idea proposed by the Secretary of the
Smithsonian several years ago but presently not seriously pursued
by the government).
