    Launching a People's Manifesto for Wildlife, broadcaster Chris Packham said the UK is witnessing a "mass extinction in our own backyards" due to a lack of regard for the environment - such as building roads and houses through natural habitats and using pesticides in farming. A staggering 38,000 mountain hares have been killed on hunting estates across Scotland, and the manifesto warns the animals could become extinct in our lifetime.
