The Memorial Bear Fund (MBF) was set up in 1992 to honor the memory of biologists Kirk Inberg and Kevin Roy and pilot Ray Austin. All three were lost while conducting a grizzly bear flight in northwest Wyoming in 1991. Pilot Fred Reed was also lost in a plane crash in northwest Wyoming in 1995 and the MBF is intended to honor their memory.

The Memorial Bear Fund is administered by the Wyoming Wildlife Foundation and supports research, habitat protection, education, and other projects for all species of bears. Projects will be evaluated based on likelihood of success, project readiness, availability of matching funds, significance at local/state/regional level, duration of benefits and adequacy of monitoring
