SimplyScienceDirectory is not a "science" directory - it's aim is to assist businesses serving Australia’s future growth. 

We believe most companies will be interested in providing others with a clear summary of their management, products and services.

SimplyScienceDirectory will cover details of prospective customers, plus names of key personnel, manufactured products, ancillaries and services. Every company providing this detail will receive a copy of the information gathered.

An email is being sent to over two hundred significant companies, inviting their participation.

They will supply company information, linked to their main classification.

Most business persons realize that it takes only a few new customers to significantly improve business.

Referrals are always the most productive form of advertising!

About the beneficiaries

All funds raised go to the Andrew Shaw Foundation, the only source of emergency relief funding for those impacted by HIV in the state.  One third of people living with HIV in Tasmania live below the poverty line.  Many are socially isolated.  Reported transmissions in Tasmania are on the rise and requests for support via the Foundation are increasing.


As one client described, “After my diagnosis 6 years ago, I spoke to nobody.  It was a heavy burden to carry alone – the mental health impact was enormous.  Seeking support online, I discovered TasCAHRD.  When I spoke to their support worker I broke down.  It felt like I’d been carrying a deep, dark secret.”


“When I finally had the courage to join their coffee group, I didn’t realise the power it would have.  I felt welcomed, started to understand what was normal, connected with others facing the same issues.  Now I meet new members who feel the way I did, and I can support them.”

The direct impact of the Andrew Shaw Foundation support cannot be overstated.  It achieves more than assisting people living with HIV, and their carers, to survive extreme financial and emotional challenges in their lives.  Knowing that someone cares enough to reach out to them is transformative.


Any questions about the Andrew Shaw Foundation, or about the Rainbow Gala Charity Ball can be directed to Sarah at TasCAHRD on [email protected]


At Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

You will see a number of species that are sadly now extinct everywhere but Tasmania.  They include the Tasmanian devil, the Eastern quoll and the shy Tasmanian bettong.  These three marsupial species have made their last stand Tasmania and, sadly, other marsupials are at risk of joining that list.

Australia has the highest number of mammal extinctions in the past 200 years and at Bonorong we are determined to ensure these animals do not join that list.  As well as these animals you will see everything from possums to potoroos, emus to echidnas, the agile spotted-tailed quoll and orphaned wombats.  The focus is our wonderful natives.

All our animals are here for a reason and our number one aim is to see them back in the bush and to prevent them arriving at our door in the first place.  Come and learn how you can help! Read our wildlife rescue page to find out how you can be involved in caring for these animals, maybe even becoming a wildlife rescuer or carer yourself.
