cambium or live tissue of stems, though some species lay eggs on top of leaves or stems. The eggs may be parasitised (parasite) by wasps, such as the tiny fairyflies (Fairyfly) (Mymaridae) and Trichogrammatidae. The females of some membracid species sit over their eggs to protect them from predators and parasites, and may buzz their wings at the intruder. The females of some gregarious species work together to protect each others' eggs. In at least one species, ''Publilia modesta'', mothers serve to attract ants when nymph (nymph (biology))s are too small to produce much honeydew. Some other species make feeding slits for the nymphs. The mantled howler is sympatric with another howler monkey species, the Guatemalan black howler, ''A. pigra'', over a small part of its range, in Guatemala and Mexico near the Yucatan Peninsula. Delbarton students also have several opportunities to travel abroad. The school participates in foreign exchange programs with schools in Ireland, particularly sister school Glenstal Abbey School in County Limerick, and the Bildungszentrum Markdorf School in Markdorf, Germany. Juniors can travel to the Caribbean during the summer between their junior and senior year to learn about the culture and history of select islands through the school's SOL program. Students also have the opportunity to experience eco-tourism first hand in Costa Rica. Students have visited nature reserves, Arenal Volcano, JACO, Poás Volcano National Park, Monteverde and Alex's all under the guidance of Carlos Vallerte while studying at the CPI language school in Heredia, Costa Rica. Delbarton students have also traveled to Spain on several organized summer trips and to Germany for World Youth Day with the school's religious educator David Hajduk. The school has also sent several students to help assist in Operation Smile Missions in China, Honduras, and Thailand. The most recent established trip overseas was a mission trip to Nairobi, Kenya, and Hanga (Pittosporum resiniferum), Tanzania, where students donated money and aid to several schools. thumb left Monteverde (Image:A Collared Redstart.jpg), Costa Rica The Collared Redstart is 12.5 cm in length and weighs 11 g.
