Cabox Aspiring Geopark spans the Bay of Islands Ophiolites and adjacent sections of ancient North America’s continental shelf, slope and rise. Geologists have referred to this section of Newfoundland’s Appalachian Miogeocline as the Galapagos of Plate Tectonics, because of the role it played in confirming the modern theory of plate tectonics.
