Bad news, entire world save for one drop dead gorgeous ocean conservationist: Vampire Diariesdreamboat Ian Somerhalder has found his future wife. Who is the lucky lady? Read on to find out!

“Umm, is she married??? Does she want to be???” Ian tweeted yesterday, along with a link to an article about Ocean Ramsey, an ocean conservationist who is swimming with sharks in the hope of raising awareness surrounding Great White Sharks and their important place in the ecosystem. Or, as Ocean puts it on her website.

“While swimming with Great Whites is a thrilling and inspiring experience, my interaction with sharks is absolutely driven by my greater goal to advocate shark conservation. Many people fear sharks and have unfortunately only seen them portrayed on TV and in films as mindless man-eating machines. In truth, sharks are intelligent, calculated, and generally very cautious about approaching humans. More importantly, sharks play a vital role in maintaining a healthy ocean ecosystem and are being overfished to the point of extinction.” So, not a fan of Sharknado, then?

Yeah, she’s pretty awesome. In addition to her work as a shark conservationist, Ocean is a model, scuba diver, and free diver. According to her website, she grew up surfing and diving in Hawaii and San Diego, which means she has been swimming with sharks for her entire life. And, we have to say, after watching the videos of Ocean swimming with the fish and seeing how passionate she is about the her mission to change public opinion about these sea-faring creatures, we’re kind of in love with her, too.

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
