The Blu Bird Sanctuary is a fictional bird sanctuary in Rio de Janeiro. Named in honor of Blu, the sanctuary was organized by Linda, Tulio, and Fernando in order to protect the Tijuca Forest in Rio de Janeiro from smugglers, and to protect Blu, Jewel, and their family. It is named in honor of Blu. The sanctuary is where Tulio releases Jewel after her wing has made a full recovery at the end of Rio.

In Rio 2, the sanctuary is the Spix Macaw Family's home, where their birdhouse is located. It is also where Linda and Tulio's House is.

At the end of the movie, the family moves to the Amazon, but the family probably spends summers there (due to what Jewel said). So it might have stayed put.

A slightly different logo is seen on a helicopter belonging to the sanctuary at the end of Rio 2.

Note the slightly different logo on the helicopter.

In the ending credits of Rio 2, a small wooden outpost was built in the Amazon Rainforest with Fernando on it, which may indicate that the Blu Bird Sanctuary is now in charge of the Sanctuary's protection from outsiders.
