Zac Efron visits Great Barrier Reef for Netflix series
The Great Barrier Reef is set to feature in Zac Efron's Netflix series after the Hollywood actor paid a visit to the iconic Queensland destination last week.
Efron and producing partner Darin Olien today shared photos from their visit to the The Australian Institute of Marine Science in Townsville where they were taught about coral seeding tools that aim to speed up the return of coral cover to the damaged reef.
The US actor, who recently based himself in Byron Bay, is currently travelling Australia filming the second season of Netflix series Down to Earth with Zac Efron, which explores nature, cultures and sustainable living.
"@australianmarinescience is developing tools and approaches for enhancing coral reef resilience on the Great Barrier Reef. Learning the ways we can help save these ecosystems before we check them out in person," the caption read on Down to Earth's Instagram post.
Olien added: "Supporting the health of this important ecosystem!"
The filming group, which includes his brother Dylan Efron, have been sharing their trip on social media, including getting acquainted with cockatoos at the Whitsundays.
Previously they have filmed across locations in Adelaide, Tasmania, Victoria, the Hunter Valley and Dubbo.
