No way of telling. Just about everything now is on the Endangered Species List. In fact, as of 2011, there were approximately 7 billion people in the world, putting humans on the List, also.

Harvard University entomologist Edward O. Wilson, often-called "the father of biodiversity," estimates that right now we are losing at least three species every hour. He also states that by far the most serious problem is habitat loss. Today more than 100 species of mammals are threatened with extinction. By contrast, in the last 400 years some 36 species have become extinct, mostly because of the destructive acts of human beings. The growth in the rate of extinction is alarming

U.N. estimates 3 extinctions an hour (05.22.2007)
(MSNBC) Human activities are wiping out three animal or plant species every hour and the world must do more to slow the worst spate of extinctions since the dinosaurs by 2010, the United Nations said on Tuesday.
