Ian Somerhalder has no trouble showing his altruistic side in real life.

Fresh from a Vampire Diaries taping last night, the actor hopped a red-eye to Washington, D.C., in order to testify before Congress today on behalf of the Multinational Species Coalition, comprising eco-minded organizations ranging from the World Wildlife Fund to the Sierra Club to the National Audubon Society.
