A note of interest:
On August 5, 2003 one loon - a female - was caught and tagged by members of the Biodiverstity Research Institute, on Hardwood Island. Testing was performed to determine the levels of heavy metals (in this case mercury). The results indicate a moderate level, which according to a report from Mr. Savoy and others at the Institute, translates to 1.0 - 3.0 ppm.
For more information, you can have a look at their website
www.briloon.org . In my opinion, it is a great project and I hope they can keep an eye on many more Meddybemps loons! 

Extra note: I contacted the people at Biodiversity Research Institute to find out if there was any new “news” about the Meddybemps loon. To date, they haven’t been able to go back and check on her well-being. Perhaps if they heard from more of us, they might be able to conduct more research on “our” loon population.

In case the English disclaimer isn’t legally “sound”, I will keep the German version one in as well - for all those who want to practise their high school German! :-)
