Chris Packham plans to confront the Royal Family about fox hunting when he collects his CBE from Buckingham Palace.
The 57-year-old naturalist is determined to question "someone of influence" about the activity, and says he doesn't care if his "cheeky words" will be deemed "inappropriate".
Chris told Radio Times magazine: "There will be lots of cheeky little words, I assure you. Nobody ever gets off the hook around me.
"You don't get many opportunities in life but if I meet someone of influence I will use it. I don't care if it can be deemed inappropriate, it's important to say something.
"If it [the award] had been for broadcasting, I don't know what I would have done. But it's for services to nature conservation, and that's what I'm all about."
Chris - who co-hosted BBC wildlife programme "The Really Wild Show" with the late Terry Nutkins and Michaela Strachan - is forever approached by fans who tell him that it was animal adventures on TV that made them want to devote their lives to helping creatures great and small.
He previously said: "The greatest thing about "The Really Wild Show" is that it was imaginative, innovative, educational and entertaining.
"It ticked all those boxes and as a consequence it was very, very popular.
"The legacy that it has is that it seemed to inspire lots of young people to go into careers to do with the environment, conservation and natural history, which is very reassuring."
"The Really Wild Show" ran from 1986 to 2006.
