Queensland sanctions shooting of endangered bats

I understand that the fruit industry is important to the state of Queensland but so is its natural beauty and wildlife. This is an ineffectual and cruel way to deal with loss of crops. It needs to be stopped. Aren't endangered and vulnerable species' survival was more important in the long term than any crop? The government could be subsidising netting not allowing shooting. Why does wildlife need to have a dollar value before its custodians care for it?
