Der findes mange klubber og foreninger, man kan melde sig ind i hvis man er interesseret i zebrafinker. Her er en oversigt over nogle sammen med kontaktinformation. Beklager det kun er på engelsk.
Australia has an active Federation which meets once a year. A Team Show is staged on the meeting weekend. The show is restricted in number of classes and numbers of entries from each society. Points are awarded to the society according to the position of each bird in the class. The society with the most points is the winner.
Several societies in the Federation produce their own magazines, either monthly or bi-monthly.
This society was formed in February 1986 by a number of Zebra breders who were not obtaining what they required from a Finch Society. A small magazine is produced each month keeping members up to date on happenings within the society, around Australia and the World. Australian Member $20, Overseas Member $25, Junior $10 in Australian Dollars.

In Denmark zebra finch enthusiasts have gathered in Dansk Zebrafinke Klub (DZK). Formed in 1979 this club not only has members in Denmark, but also in Sweden and Norway. A newsletter is published four times a year (in Danish). With each newsletter members receive a colour photo with description. In addition to zebra finches, the club caters for bengalese finches and java sparrows. DZK is currently heading an attempt to raise the standards of other Australian finches.
