United Activists for Animal Rights is an animal rights group led by its president Nancy Burnet and based in California, United States. It was founded in 1987.[1]

United Activists was supported by television personality Bob Barker,[2][3] and the group exposed what they considered their findings of animal cruelty on the set of Project X and in several other media projects together with Barker.[4]

United Activists for Animal Rights, Burnet and Bob Barker were sued by American Humane Association in 1989 for libel, slander and invasion of privacy.[5] It was finally settled by the insurer.[6]

Barker has also helped fund other animal rights groups, including the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, whose new vessel Bob Barker carries a helicopter named after United Activists' president Nancy Burnet.[7]
