NOAA administrator Jane Lubchenco said coral reefs and ocean acidification is the most underreported scientific story today.

A Status of Coral Reefs of the World report in 2008 found that the world has lost 19 percent of its reefs, with 35 percent threatened or at a critical stage, according to NOAA.
