Ian Somerhalder plays Damon one of the hot vampires on CW50’s THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. He is more than a pretty face he is also a vocal and dedicated activist. The Ian Somerhalder foundation focuses on animals and the environment. Recently Ian testified in Washington to help implement a ban on the commercial trade of Elephant Ivory.
Look at this cutie
He can be both serious and silly.
These pictures brought to you by Ian’s love for elephants.
Wow. My Testimony: Before the U.S House of Representatives Committee on Natural Resources, Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs Regarding the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Plan to Implement a Ban on the Commercial Trade in Elephant Ivory and the Consequences of that Policy. I will do my absolute best-you'll be there with me in that room on Capitol Hill. You give me so much strength, you inspire me to do more, not sleep and forge the future with you for us all. Wish me LUCK! PLEASE!
His activism goes far beyond just elephants.
