Coraclip(R) was invented as a solution for low cost (non chemical based) coral re-attachment that forms part of the Coral Nurture Program coral restoration activities integrated into existing tourism operations on the Great Barrier Reef. The design and verification of Coralclip (on our first 4,000 planted corals, August 2018-May 2019) is described in detail in our publication: Suggett et al. 2020 (Coralclip®: a low-cost solution for rapid and targeted out-planting of coral at scale. Restoration Ecology 28: 289-29). Since then, the device has been used throughout the tourism partnership to plant 60,000 corals (October 2021) across 6 northern Great Barrier Reef sites. However, the clip has also been distributed to other international partners (e.g. SECORE, restoration programs in Mauritius, Malaysia, Palua and Vanuatu) to test broader adoption efficacy.
