Now that Comic-Con’s over, Ian Somerhalder (Damon) is back to saving the world!

The actor, who spearheads his own organization dedicated to preserving wildlife and the environment, tweeted,  “Heading to DC on Thursday, testifying in congress on species extinction!Prepping testimony now- so cool...Come see me!” He followed that up with a few more details: “Im testifying before the natural resources committee on thurs.pls ask your members of congress to come & support conservation;) Thank you!”

It’s pretty amazing that Congress will be listening to Mr. Somerhalder discuss these important issues. Maybe Stephen Colbert can give him some tips? On second thought, Ian’s probably better off just sticking to the facts.
