How Many of 10 Endangered Animal Species Are Left on Our Planet

very good observations, however 99% of all species once in existence have now gone extinct, most without human help.

But, there is evidence that human activity has caused the diminishing of countless species. Scientists have found out that the burning of fossil fuels and other activities have led to species become extinct much more quickly than usual. Yes, yes, species do die out eventually, but humans are only accelerating the process.
Also, by "once in existence", I assume you're saying all the species that have lived on Earth (e.g. millions of years ago). Those species were probably made extinct by catastrophic natural events (like the asteroid disaster) and could not be prevented (because it's our planet and space). However, we humans can heal and prevent what we do.
Oh, and finally, I THINK you're falling for the apples and oranges fallacy. You're assuming that just because today and other events [that caused species extinctions] have one thing in common (animal species become extinct), that all the other factors must be the same (e.g. the cause, how fast the animals died out, etc). Yet, I doubt that's accurate.

I remember I read about kakapos, they are such sweet and awkward birds, but because of their clumsiness and no ability to fly, they are an easy prey
