Quite literally, yes - since most species currently alive remain undiscovered, it stands to reason that most species going extinct do so before we've had a chance to document them. And since we can only estimate that number, it is truly countless.

Yes, there are millions of species out there we have never discovered and many of these could go extinct before we find them. Frog populations across the globe are dwindling and noone can figure out why.

Yes, Earth is always changing and changing animals and plants habitats, some species don't adapt as fast as others and die off, or become endangered.
