The Melagiri region is an undulating landscape nestled between the Cauvery and Chinar rivers in Tamil Nadu, India. It comprises 1,295 sq km of dry deciduous, scrub, and dry evergreen forests. It forms a part of the Nilagiris Biosphere Reserve and Cauvery Elephant Reserve and is home to important elephant migration routes. The Melagiris forms part of an almost unbroken stretch of forests from Bannerghatta National Park, Cauvery Wildlife Sanctuary, Biligirirangan Hills and Sathyamangalam Forests, and eventually the Tiger reserves of Nilgiri Biosphere. It holds enormous potential of revival as an important Tiger habitat.
