Lower than expected attendance numbers have led to layoffs at the Wonders of Wildlife museum in Springfield. Six of the museum’s full-time employees are being cut, while eight other workers will be reduced to part-time status. The cuts come as a result of a 2003 budget overhaul triggered by attendance figures far below original projections. The budget was originally based on a projection of 900,000 visitors annually. Instead, about 440,000 visitors will go to the museum this year and 465,000 are expected for next year.
