  Corals belong to Anthozoa and Cnidaria class, consisting of densely populated polyps, each of them individually lives with algae called Zugansentla. Coral reefs are one of the most important and effective factors in marine ecosystems. For this reason, conservation and restoration of this aquatic environment, especially in sustainable development programs, is mentioned. In 2011, a group of coral reef located Shahid Beheshti pier in Chabahar was transferred to safe area under investment of the ports and seaside organization. This corals were endangered due to e development of Shahid Beheshti pier project. Since the corals are subtle, sensitive, fragile and vulnerable, their displacement should be done with maximum caution in order to minimize the chances of breaking and mortality. Coral Carrier was a vehicle which forty-five days used to move coral in the development project of Shahid Beheshti pier. Qua in this period, 18,000 corals were transferred to a proper location. The study showed that 34 and 76% corals safely relocated by coral basket and coral carriers respectively. The results of one year monitoring significantly showed  26 and 92% survival of corals performed with coral basket and coral carriers respectively at the level of P<0.05. Due to the efficiency of the coral carrier's innovative device and its reliance on coral transfer, this device can be a good alternative to the coral basket system.
