    Third graders from Ferrisburgh Central School, Ferrisburgh, Vermont think
    that mercury gets into a loon's body by the air that the loon breathes and
    the food that it eats. Mercury gets into the air from factories, cars, and
    fires. Then it travels in the air and the loons breathe it in. It also goes
    into the water and the food that the loons eat.
