The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has honored The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder.

At the HSUS's 26th annual Genesis Awards, he will receive the prestigious Wyler Award.

The Wyler Award is given to a public figure or celebrity for raising awareness of animal issues through their pull in the media.

Ian is specifically being recognized for his use of traditional and social media to advocate for issues such as shark finning, endangered animals, fur and the Canadian seal hunt.

He has even founded the Ian Somerhalder Foudnation, whose goal is to "empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures."

Ian said:

"The tireless efforts of The Humane Society of the United States to protect animals around the world has always been an inspiration to me and I’m honored to be recognized with this year’s Wyler Award."

An HSUS rep said about Somerhalder:

"Ian is the epitome of a new kind of advocate who leverages his fame and an array of media platforms to draw public attention to animal protection concerns and other issues that he cares deeply about.

From addressing Congress to making TV appearances to regularly blogging to informing his million-plus followers on Twitter, Ian is a major voice and force for animals and a most deserving recipient of The Wyler Award."

The Genesis Awards will air on Animal Planet in May if you wanna check out the yummy Ian receive his award!

Congrats, Ian!

Man Pleads Guilty To Smuggling 55 Turtles At LAX

DUMB!

A Japanese man has pleaded guilty to smuggling 55 live turtles and tortoises from his country into the U.S. by hiding them in snack food boxes. Yummy!

Federal prosecutors said in a statement that 39-year-old Atsushi Yamagami pleaded guilty Monday to one felony count of smuggling in a Los Angeles courtroom. Yamagami faces a maximum of 20 years in prison at his Oct. 31 sentencing.

Another man in the operation pleaded guilty May 23 and is scheduled for sentencing Tuesday.

The men, both from Osaka, were arrested in January at Los Angeles International Airport as part of an undercover investigation by U.S. federal agents called Operation Flying Turtle. BEST NAME EVER!

The animals are protected by an international endangered species agreement and can only be imported with a permit.
