Enrique Laúd es un macho de tortuga marina de la especie Dermochelys coriacea, fue capturado de manera incidental en una red de pesca en la costa de norte de Sinaloa. Los pescadores la reportaron y lo entregaron de buena fe al Programa de Vida Silvestre del IPN-CIIDIR Sinaloa para rehabilitación, debido a que presentaba una serie de lesiones y un prolapso del órgano reproductor. Recibió atención y tratamiento inmediato y puesto en observación durante una semana, ante la pronta recuperación, fue liberado de inmediato al medio natural no sin antes haberle colocado un transmisor satelital para conocer sus movimientos migratorios y conocer mas sobre estas increíbles tortugas en el Golfo de California.
