Ewaso is turning out to be quite a character, "very spunky and charismatic," according to Rowe. "The other day, when it started raining, we had her go inside to her stall. She started trumpeting at everyone to let them know she wanted to keep playing outside. Then, when we let her out, she went barreling into the grass with her keeper."
Ewaso's keepers, Mike and Leado, are seasoned in raising vulnerable rescued elephant calves to be strong juvenile elephants, ready to go back to the wild. "Ewaso is in the best of hands," Rowe said. "Someone is always with her, and Leado sleeps with her in the stall at night to be sure she is OK."
