Solution

Temperature monitored chambers are used to house Humboldt penguins. Their food and habitat are maintained in accordance with their natural habitat. This has acclimatised them to the zoo's conditions. If such precautions are not taken, penguins will not be able to survive in Mumbai's hot and humid climate. Because these conditions will kill penguins, they have been acclimatised.
