CHRIS Packham says he has received two “very serious” death threats targeting his family.
The Springwatch host, 57, got the messages after he spoke out condemning the killing of “pest” birds.
Speaking on today’s Good Morning Britain, he said: “Police have been spending a lot of time at my house over the past few days.
“We’ve had packages sent continuing human excrement and last night – well I can’t say too much because I haven’t been in touch with police yet.
“It’s not just my family – it’s businesses I work with, small businesses that I’m associated with loosely.
“I’ve had death threats of a very serious nature.
“But what worries me is that these charities that I’m affiliated with and the small businesses that I work for.
“These people aren’t set up to take this sort of abuse and yet they’ve had to close their websites, their TripAdvisor accounts have had to be shut down because they have been bombarded by these bullies who want to take aim at me.
“My message is clear, please take aim at me but leave all of the charities, all of the other businesses that I work with, leave them out of it.”
Chris recently told The Sun that two dead crows were strung up outside his house after his comments about killing the birds.

Angry farmers called on the BBC to sack the star after Natural England this week revoked general licences needed to kill 16 species.
He said: “The same old nefarious interest groups have whipped up a frenzy of fake news. It’s not surprising. They are in trouble and are lashing out.
“In a sad and perverse way this ghastly action indicates I’m making progress. I’ve always said I’m not here to make friends, I’m here to make a difference.”
Following the changes by Natural England, anyone wanting to shoot birds on their land must apply for individual licence.
But farmers say they will now be unable to protect their crops.
The Countryside Alliance said the move was “completely impractical and irresponsible”.
Chief exec Tim Bonner said: “To withdraw the historic ability to manage these species without individual lice-nces at 36 hours’ notice is a recipe for disaster.”
