They save animals.
After the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling disaster of 2010, Ian Somerhalder became really active in raising awareness about protecting wildlife and helping to cleanup the Gulf. This led to the creation of the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which aims to protect animals and the environment. Over the past two years, the organization has taken on many different projects; recently, they've been busy building an animal sanctuary in Louisiana. In addition, Ian has testified in front of Congress in support of wildlife conservation.
