The Centro de Conservaçāo Ambiental (Centre for Environmental Conservation) (often referred to as "Tulio's Aviary") is the place shown during Rio where Tulio takes Blu and Linda to meet Jewel. The name was chosen by the director of Rio, Carlos Saldanha. It is the name of a real bird sanctuary in Rio de Janeiro. This sanctuary brings in birds from foundation, for their safety, and those saved from smugglers. They do as much as they can to save the species for their bird friends.
- This is where Blu and Jewel first met.
- This place was probably inspired by the Botanical Garden of Rio de Janeiro (Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro), whose architecture is similar.
- Ornithologists have the right to barge into someone's home and take their pet bird to save their species (by law) without the owner's permission.
- In the movie, 36 different species of birds were shown at the centre, including the Cockatoo, Parakeet, Spix's Macaw and Red-Beaked hawk.
- Ornithology is the branch of zoology that deals with the study of birds, including macaws.
- It's unknown what became of it following the ending of Rio. It's possible Tulio still runs it as a part-time job alongside his work at the Blu Bird Sanctuary.
- The name means Centre for Environmental Conservation in Spanish.
- When Tulio gives Linda his business card, the phone number on it reads (55) 21 5342-11004 and the extension reads 6345.
